Will The Rock be a future candidate for President of The United States? Will Trump be convicted and go to jail over the missing files? And who killed Tupac? On this week’s podcast, Marion tackles America’s most un-answerable questions, from politics to celebrities to celebrities entering politics and back again.
Who will be the next celebrity to take American politics by storm? Marion parses out who could be the next Trump. With former comedian Zelensky running the show in war torn Ukraine and America’s history with celebrity presidents, Marion discusses future stars turned global politicians.
What does a competent Government mean for public opinion in the States? Marion discusses how a capable Government is equated with dullness as Biden has led a stable term in the Oval Office. In the aftermath of Trump’s disastrous tenure, Marion feels Biden’s stable government is not viewed as it probably deserves.
After Trump’s indictment will we see prison time for the former President? Marion gives a couple of the most jaw dropping theories doing the rounds on what could happen if he is convicted, including the possibility of a pardon by the current Democratic president!
What issues should Americans be up in arms about? Should Americans seek to abolish the Electoral College and the Senate? Marion breaks down which states are shafted in representation by the current electoral system.
Why do American’s have such low sympathy for Biden’s embattled son Hunter?
—- Over on Patreon — in the XL edition of the show you can hear:
Is there ever a possibility of assault rifles being taken off the streets in America. Marion brings new hope as California’s Governor Gavin Newsom works to pass a new amendment that could alter the iconic second amendment. What do the Democratic Governor’s ideas involve and could they come to fruition?
What is the state of abortion law after the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe V Wade? Marion discusses the patchwork quilt of injustice that has taken over the US as women are suffering in restrictive states. However, even conservative states are fighting back with Kansas holding a referendum on abortion rights that could bring hope in other places in the future.
Are American’s worried about AI? More importantly, should they be? Marion and Jarlath chat about AI use in America and what it means for workers across multiple sectors as it has the potential to affect the job security of many, from truck drivers to screen writers. Marion also looks at how it could affect disinformation campaigns in the upcoming election.
Finally, they address the all important mystery of who shot Tupac Shakur on the Vegas strip in 1996? Marion presents an interesting theory as Jarlath discusses the idea of reparations for slavery in America.
Jarlath is also on tour right now. He will be doing his latest standup show in Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Armagh, Galway, Cork, Birmingham, London and Tralee to why not grab a ticket while you can. All the other dates have fully sold out! https://linktr.ee/IrishmanAbroad
