Irishman In America - Marion’s Top 5 Most Concerning US Political Figures For 2023

December 2, 2022
Who are the most dangerous, troubling or concerning individuals in the US political arena today? Nobody can answer that question better than our friend in Washington, Marion McKeone of the Sunday Business Post. In part 1 of today's jam packed episode our legendary US political correspondent doesn't just select the 'crazies", she burrows down into the characters most likely to have an impact in 2023. We've set aside the big Orange lad for one week and attempted to put five of the most worrying and strange characters under the microscope. We also get a few honourable mentions that might surprise you and Marion's picks of the week.

Irishman Running Abroad - All About That Base - Aerobic (Part 1)

November 29, 2022

Sonia O'Sullivan explains how building a good aerobic base is a lot like pouring the perfect pint of Guinness. It's deceptively simple and remarkably easy to screw up if you don't know what you're doing. Answer every question on heart rate zones to regulating breathing, this expansive episode comes in two haves. One is available for free here and the other can be found on our feed on www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad

Top physical therapist Vinny Mulvey drops in again to discuss the role of external stress in injuries and building the aerobic base. Patrons also get a bonus episode this week with Vinny giving a masterclass on returning from injury. Jarlath also explains how he nearly burned down Sonia's house last week and we get a unique tip of the week before going around the parishes to see what the listeners have been running in the last week.

Irishman In America - Thanksgiving Special Episode - Optimism In America

Irishman In America - Thanksgiving Special Episode - Optimism In America

November 25, 2022

As the States wind down for a couple of days of rest, gratitude and food appreciation, Marion reflects on the shift towards optimism in the nation on certain issues and the resignation to reality on others. With more mass shootings than days in the year 2022, how close is a ban on automatic weapons? One person who might not have the most restful Thanksgiving is Kevin McCarthy. Marion reflects on his grandstanding ways and how dumb he looks when spewing spiteful words about the undeniable imprint of Nancy Pelosi. Stupidity was the order of the day this week when the scam artist formerly known as President Trump attempted the Homer Simpson excuse for stealing confidential documents from the White House. Jarlath and Marion take a moment on this holiday to wonder if his supposedly vast support base might be beginning to fizzle now that season two of this cabaret act is looking a little predictable. Finally Marion digs into Taylor Swift's Ticketmaster debacle. Why has it taken this long for lawmaker to recognise a monopoly this obvious? Will they do anything about it or will they be bought off again by seats up front at Harry Styles.

Irishman Running Abroad - Running Better Despite Getting Older

Irishman Running Abroad - Running Better Despite Getting Older

November 14, 2022

Does running need to get more difficult with age? Have we all got a certain number of miles before injuries will start to plague us? Sonia O'Sullivan talks to Jarlath about the misconceptions and solid theories behind running over the age of 40 and beyond. What adjustments should we make to recovery, intensity and load? Is there a particular type of running we should avoid? Sonia has the answers. Vinny Mulvey helps Jarlath back on the road to recovery after a 4 week lay off with SI joint pain. We hear how the first run back goes from the side of the road. We also get Sonia's opinion on the most talked about story in Irish athletics this week. Carl Luas!

Irishman In America - Midterm Election Results Special Episode (Part 1)

November 11, 2022

This week Jarlath and Marion get together for a US Midterm election special. Marion talks us through election results and the relief of the red wave that didn’t happen. The Business Post Washington Correspondent calls her winner for the election as they talk through the standout candidates, from Kari Lake and Dr. Oz to Stacey Abrams and John Fetterman. On top of the election latest, Marion gives the low down on what’s in store for Trump should he run as a presidential candidate for 2024 and who he’s up against. As well as what Joe Biden’s legacy might be over the course of his presidential years and will he run again. Jarlath and Marion also further discuss the attack on Paul Pelosi, the Republican response and what the rise in political violence means for the future of America.

Irishman Running Abroad - Injuries Episode With Special Guest Vinny Mulvey

Irishman Running Abroad - Injuries Episode With Special Guest Vinny Mulvey

November 8, 2022

Pain comes in the same packet as running. Sonia O'Sullivan sends Jarlath to one of the top physical therapists in Ireland to figure out why he has been injured for the last four weeks. Vinny Mulvey talks to Jarlath about his understanding of the pain game with running, when to stop and the biggest risks of overloading the body. Vinny, an elite athlete in his own time, tries to puzzle out what Jarlath did wrong and empathises with him over the mental challenges of being hurt through running. Later in the show we get a trip around the running parishes as Sonia admires some of the club members who completed the New York City marathon over the weekend. Patreon members get a further thirty minutes in this episode and a bonus deep dive episode with Vinny Mulvey.

Irishman In America - Lake Fear. Is Kari Really That Scary? (Part 1)

Irishman In America - Lake Fear. Is Kari Really That Scary? (Part 1)

November 4, 2022

Is Kari Lake the new face of MAGA Republicanism? Who is she? And why are Democrats so fearful of her. Marion McKeone has been out on the campaign trail to witness what makes this candidate so similar and yet so different from those that have come before her. Many believe she will be Trump's running mate in 2024. But could the big Orange guy handle a woman like Kari or will she fall into line and "know her place"?

In second half of the discussion exclusive to Patreon supporters, we look at why the violent break in at Nancy Pelosi's residence has been viewed so lightly by some and so seriously by others, the attempt by the Supreme Court to end affirmative action and laws intended to prevent intimation at the polls as the midterms loom large. Is violence inevitable? Will the results of these elections be accepted by candidates who don't believe the current system of voting is fair?
Finally Marion recommends a brilliant new book on Sam Adams by Stacy Schiff.
(Don't forget to book your tickets for January 6th's filming of my new standup special in Dublin. Marion is going to be there. So should you.)
Why not submit a question for Marion.
