Have to agree. Nice to hear an alternative viewpoint on America rather than the one side or the other story we've been force fed over the last four years.

Yeah I thought his few comments at the end on America were more insightful than any of the journalists Eamon does have on. Eamonn was definitely hoping and expecting some Trump bashing but it didn't come

Do you reckon Eamon might have some sort of fetish about Brexit ? Could he be deriving some form of sexual gratification from talking about it ?

His interview with the Guardian a few weeks ago seemed to get some traction.

He doesn't carry much water for the Democrats either, fwiw.

Poor Eammo will be light on subject matter in January once Brexit happens and Trump is gone.

He really has really dragged the arse out of those two issues for months and months this year.

The one last week with the author and the one the other day about the famine with Ferriter were great I thought.

covid/sweden/tegnell, trump, boris/cummings...all with a very obvious biased slant.

That's basically it. A boring repetitive sh*t show.

In the last 8 days.
Kerry Babies, Covid in Germany, Dustin the Turkey, The Irish Famine, The Running Book have all had dedicated shows. Not to mind football content.

Bemoaning a Current Affairs show discussing highly significant current affairs topics and ignoring 5 shows which are one offs is indeed boring and repetitive.

The last 8 days has also had individual shows on Covid, Trump, Brexit, Covid again, Covid again, Brexit again and then Brexit again.
