An Irishman Abroad

An Irishman In America (Trump’s Alternative Reality and Jacob Blake with Marion McKeone): Episode 384 (Trailer)

August 28, 2020

Marion McKeone joins Jarlath just hours after the end of the Republican National Convention to sort through the mess and get clarity on when week America reached another tipping point. Jarlath asks what message the bizarre lack of social distancing on the front lawn of the White House sends to the family of those who have died. Marion picks through the new positioning of the Trump campaign. 

There’s an in-depth discussion of the Jacob Blake shooting and the response by athletes. There’s even time for a brilliant listener email that questions the Democrats role in the rise of Donald Trump.

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