An Irishman In America (Marion McKeone’s Notes From The Campaign Trail - Is It Too Soon To Be Optimistic?: Special Bonus Episode): Trailer

October 28, 2020
With 6 days to go the bookies in Vegas are making Joe a red hot favourite to win but is it too soon to get hopeful? Marion explains, as only she can, why a Biden win would seem to be on the cards if the cards hadn’t turned out to be jokers in 2016. 
 
In the bonus episode exclusive to our members on Patreon, Jarlath catches up with Marion in Wisconsin as she relays some of the craziness she is seeing on the podium in the gun-toting crowds. She explains why record numbers turning out to vote early could go either way and there’s a deep dive into Donald’s 60 minute meltdown. As per usual this episode covers way more ground than you’d ever expect from a thirty minute chat including what to expect in the final few days of campaigning.

From Darkness Into Light - The Brian Pennie Story

From Darkness Into Light - The Brian Pennie Story

October 24, 2020

Brian Pennie poses the question 'how would you live your life differently if life gave you a second chance?' Brian’s drug addiction was so severe that he was deemed too much of a risk for detox. In this rare conversation, he tells his incredible story of rebuilding his world from the depths of addiction, crippling anxiety through to the most unlikely recovery journey.

Jarlath asks Brian about the significance of gratitude and how a lack of awareness while suffering with addiction was preventing him from reaching a place of appreciation. We also find out the subtle impact of being a 'black belt in self-deception.'

Brian explains how a traumatic surgery as a child has impacted on his life and much more, this is the perfect conversation to listen to on a week where Ireland continues to bare the weight of the pandemic.

An Irishman In America (The Final Presidential Debate: Full Debate Review with Marion McKeone) - Trailer

October 23, 2020

With bleary eyes Marion and Jarlath stayed up late to pick apart the final Presidential debate so you don’t have to. How did the mic muting change things? Was it another playground fist fight? Or did cooler heads prevail? 

After covering 700 miles on the campaign trail Marion has a lot to report back. Marion assesses each swing and a miss, every landed punch and why Trump’s attempts to paint Joe as “crooked” just won’t work. The clock is ticking loudly now and the Trump campaign appears to have a mountain to climb, or do they?

If you have a question for Marion please send it through to irishmanabroadpodcast@gmail.com and Jarlath will do his best to include it next week.
