An Irishman Abroad

An Irishman In America (Biden Steps Up, Bannon Goes Down with Marion McKeone): Episode 382 (Trailer)

August 21, 2020

Another tumultuous week explained by the always brilliant Marion McKeone. Jarlath asks if he was tricked or was Joe Biden’s DNC speech really that good? Marion reviews an abnormal convention in an abnormal time and wonders how the lack of a cheering crowd will change the Republican Convention. 

There’s a lot to get through with the delicious irony of Steve Bannon’s indictment, the postal service disarray suddenly becoming clear, the potential for social unrest if Trump is defeated and more.

If you have a question for Marion please send it through to and Jarlath will do his best to include it next week.
