An Irishman Abroad

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (The Aftermath: What Remains At The End Of This Storm): Trailer

November 27, 2020

The end is almost in sight for the pandemic and the reign of Donald Trump. On the day of his first proper admission that he will vacate the White House if the electoral college votes him out, Marion and Jarlath examine the wreckage and the circling vultures. Recorded on Thanksgiving with Marion holed up in hotel quarantining, there is time to pick apart the bizarre approach to the virus and how it places Biden in murky waters. Is it even possible to unite America after all of this. What can they be united upon? Marion tries to make sense of the pardoning of Michael Flynn and there’s a look at the progress of the case against Ghislaine Maxwell.

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