An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (Marion’s Most Bizarre Moments Of 2020): (Trailer)

December 31, 2020
It’s been a year that defied all the odds and expectations. A year so full of “did that just happen” moments that it feels like we all need to take a breath before launching into another. So rather than trawl through the ashes, Marion and Jarlath examine the most bizarre moments in US politics. Doing so becomes a hard balance to strike as Jarlath and Marion fully accept that the trauma suffered by many this year is no laughing matter. Despite the Irishman In America podcast only beginning during the summer, Marion has witnessed some toe-curlingly embarrassing moments, speeches that left everyone in attendance wondering what drugs the speaker had taken and a President who didn’t just encourage people to inject bleach but wondered out loud if trees could spontaneously combust. At the end of this bumper episode Jarlath asks Marion to estimate how many Americans believe this election was stolen. The answer will definitely shock you. Finally Jarlath and Marion wish all our listeners a very happy new year and talk about what happened next.

Irishman Running Abroad : “Resetting Goals: Sonia O’Sullivan’s Guide To Making Difficult Targets Seem Less Far Away”

Irishman Running Abroad : “Resetting Goals: Sonia O’Sullivan’s Guide To Making Difficult Targets Seem Less Far Away”

December 28, 2020
Getting ahead of the January blue is essential. It doesn’t matter who you are, January can be a tough month. Sonia opens up about her difficult times during this period and shares the secrets she’s discovered in refocusing her targets to make the end goal “near” rather than “far away”. If the first few months of this series were about establishing a solid foundation, Sonia walks Jarlath through her theory on building the best training bracket in the absence of actual races. She created a very unusual goal for him and the listeners that will allow everyone to get excited about the dark month ahead. We hear how “the temptation to look in the oven” can spoil the reward at the end of a training framework. Jar gives a shout to a loyal listener and next week’s cookery episode gets a preview.

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (The Truth Behind The Many Faces Of Melania Trump): (Trailer)

December 24, 2020
This week we take a brief break from the hamster wheel of Trump pardons, denials and delusion to look at one of the most mysterious figures in the White House. Never has there been a First Lady quite like Melania Trump. Jarlath asks Marion about the strange transactional roots of her relationship with Donald Trump. 
 
We hear about her failed modelling career, habit of cutting old friends from her life and her strange “Be Best” campaign. Jarlath asks if Melania’s decision to forgo any sort of campaigning on the “standard” First Lady issues is part of an old view of mystique. But how do we know anything about this woman? Marion explains who the closest sources are and why even they are in the dark on a lot of matters.

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (Mitch McConnell Pulls The Rug: The Legacy Of The Tantrum Thrower Is Sealed): (Trailer)

December 18, 2020

3,500 Americans died in one day and the President didn’t even mention it. He’s too busy fighting for a job he has completely stopped doing. Marion discusses the view of America from Dublin while she visits home for a relative awaiting surgery. In a week when Mitch McConnell pulled the plug out of Trump’s sink, the electoral college made their vote and yet more spurious election challenge causes were flung out of court, Marion looks at the legacy that remains. Is the era of the a*$hole over or just beginning? Jarlath and Marion try to focus on some more optimistic angles, preview what is coming down the track and the very real prospect of 45 putting the football under his arm and going home early to Mar a Largo.

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.

The language of running comes under the microscope this week as Sonia and Jarlath untangle some of the more complicated concepts, terms and phrases doing the rounds today. In typical no nonsense fashion the Irish athletics legend explains how simple terms such as splits, intervals and strides have very different meanings. There’s a few laughs to be had at Jarlath’s expense as explains his brief relationship with plyometric training. And Sonia gives us the details of a cocky runner who made the mistake of mockery during last weekend’s Tasmanian 10K. There’s news on this weekend’s event for Jigsaw and a few of your questions answered as usual. Hozier plays us out with his classic running anthem “Almost”.

An Irishman In America (Marion McKeone On The Current Turmoil That Engulfs America): (Trailer)

December 11, 2020
It’s been a long two weeks since we last heard from Marion. In that time cases have surged, Trump’s fundraising to “fight the fraud” has hit $200 million and the race to approve a vaccine seems to have passed the authorities completely. Somehow, as always, Marion makes sense of it all. Jarlath quizzes Marion on GOP members and the fear of reprisals. With an investigation into Hunter Biden looming does the President elect face even darker times ahead. There is light in the horizon as the electoral college vote takes place next week and Marion looks forward to 45 packing up the tent.
