November 27, 2020

The end is almost in sight for the pandemic and the reign of Donald Trump. On the day of his first proper admission that he will vacate the White House if the electoral college votes him out, Marion and Jarlath examine the wreckage and the circling vultures.

To start with this week Jarlath reveals news of a brand new podcast series from Irishman Abroad exclusively available in full to our Patrons. The questions everyone is asking about the 45th President’s bizarre choices include: “What is the plan here?” “Will he delay until January 20th then slink into the shadows?” “What is it all for?” “Why can’t the system do anything to stop this from happening and costing more lives?” 

Marion offers some clarity as usual and offers a less well known explanation for the pointless stalling and litigation. Jarlath asks Marion to explain if pulling troops out of hot regions is an attempt to sabotage Biden’s Presidency. There’s a look at the firing of Christopher Krebs and the mortifying attempt by Rudy Guiliani to be the best little boy in school. Finally Jarlath asks Marion how she is coping and she opens up about some long term side effects of COVID19.

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

November 13, 2020

The legal challenges are failing one by one but the news madia are barely covering this news. Why is Trump doing this? Is it because he knows prison time could be on the way or is it to harvest the money he now desperately needs. Reality is dawning and his allies are falling by the wayside. Marion tells us what we are not hearing and few insider titbits she has stumbled across this week. We definitely toasted too early but why are these states taking so long to tally their votes? 

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