Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O’Sullivan: “Balance: The Most Overlooked Aspect Of Running”

March 1, 2021
It’s remarkable that it has taken us 6 months to get to the issue of balance in running given it is perhaps the most essential component of biomechanics and the training itself. Sonia leads Jarlath through the basic theory of teaching your feet to react to changes in your body position. There’s a look at some of the more unusual training exercises to improve the reaction of our proprioceptors and how to pronounce proprioceptors. There’s the new book club section with the announcement of our first book choice, “Shoe Dog” by Phil Knight. Sonia then broadens the discussion of balance into our wider training and explains to Jarlath why running slowly needs to be the biggest part of his week.

Mark Horgan On The Making Of “Where Is George Gibney?”

Mark Horgan On The Making Of “Where Is George Gibney?”

February 27, 2021

Mark Horgan joins Jarlath for an in depth discussion about the production and impact of his global hit podcast series, “Where Is George Gibney?”. We hear of Mark’s first awareness of the case and how eve the was confused as to whether Gibney was imprisoned for the initial sexual abuse charges against him. Jarlath digs into the exact judicial loophole that allowed Gibney to leave the country and evade. We get an inside look into Mark’s initial hesitancy to pursue the project out of concern for the victims, the overarching aim to tell their stories and his own views on how we sometimes try to explain away pure evil in others. 

The victims and their courage is a central focus of the discussion and Jarlath asks Mark about the significance of Gary O’Toole in the process. Later in the conversation we hear about the moment Mark confronted Gibney face to face and how Florida gun laws had him and Ciaran Cassidy on edge at all times. Now that Mark has returned to his old stomping ground with the Second Captains team and the dust has somewhat settled, there is time to reflect on what just happened. What does a new Garda investigation into Gibney mean? What will Mark do next and would ever consider leaving the team and doing it by himself?

February 26, 2021
Marion is on her way to CPAC. Jarlath, like a lot of people, hasn’t a notion what that is. Marion explains its significance and how Donald Trump’s appearance there on Sunday could be the beginning of his next run for the White House. Before all that they look at Tiger Woods and his near miss this week. Jarlath also asks about Florida and why it seems to be the most bizarre state in America.  There’s also a look ahead to this Sunday’s episode with the creator of the “Where Is George Gibney” podcast Mark Horgan and tonight’s comedy club with Ardal O’Hanlon.

Lockdown malaise can kill a run before it happens. Sonia chats to Jarlath about motivating ourselves when it feels like we can’t get out the door.

If President Joe Biden gets his immigration bill passed there will be a path for 11 million illegal aliens to get American citizenship. Marion explains what the President will have to do and why the term alien is being changed. Jarlath asks about the impact the bill could have for then undocumented Irish in America. Vicious snow storms have rocked Texas this week leaving millions without power.

This conversation covers a lot including the delay in revealing Trump’s tax returns and China’s attempt to claim that the virus emerged from a Maryland laboratory rather than Wuhan.

Aoife’s inspiring attitude to training is something that we all need right now in these challenging times. There are a few laughs as usual during the quick fire round.

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (What Is The Point Of The Impeachment Show: Is Vaccine Rollout A Hidden Fiasco?): (Trailer)

February 12, 2021
As shocking as the impeachment trial evidence is, you can’t help feeling that with the numbers stacked in favour of acquittal, “What is the point of all of this?” Jarlath puts it to Marion that the supposed purpose for this drawn out process might just backfire in the eyes of the international community. There’s brief panic as Marion almost agrees with Donald Jnr. and a bizarre story of a getting offered a vaccine at the meat counter of a Washington deli! Jarlath quizzes Marion on the state of the US vaccine and the challenges being faced in winning trust. Marion commits to attending the “Return Of The Craic” online comedy club on Friday February 19th because as they both admit, a week this long needs the antidote of laughter to finish it off.
