An Irishman Abroad

January 6th Hearings Week 1 - Irishman In America with Marion McKeone

June 17, 2022

Can a direct link be established between Donald Trump and the storming of the Capitol? The next two weeks of evidence might be the closest Democrats will ever get. Just one week ago we asked if there was any point to the public hearings by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. After just one sitting we got a definitive, "Yes!" Marion McKeone is on the ground and watching every single minute so you don't have to. She gives us her "take aways" from week one, the moments that matter and what to expect from here. The nonsense of Mike Pence being elevated to a hero gets laughed out of the podcast studio and the lost takes of the "we love you" message Donald sent to the rioters may never see the light of day.

In the full-size Patreon exclusive extended cut (available at, Marion delves deeper into some of the "revelations" that aren't really revelations and then turns her sights to the 2024 election. Questions over whether Joe Biden will be too old to handle the job abound this week and the biggest interest rate hike in decades sent the markets into turmoil. As usual Marion explains what it all means and recommends what's good to watch this weekend.
