What am politics?
When it comes to understanding political issues, Richie is a self confessed toddler. That’s why he’s enlisted the help of Steve, his politically savvy drinking buddy, to help him understand how government affects our everyday lives and our interactions with each other.
Join them, as they break down big political issues into comedic bite size bits and try to figure out, What Am Politics?
This week, Steve and Richie are joined by Political Correspondent Hugh O'Connell, to discuss everything you need to know about the office of the Irish President and the upcoming election.
Politically motivated stabbings, vigilante justice, car wash money laundering. These are not plot points for an upcoming Netflix drama, these are actual things that are happening in Brazil today.
Steve is away this week. So, rather than crawling into his cave of loneliness and introversion, Richie decided to reach out to friend of the show, Jazza John to be a guest host. They talk about the landscape of LGBT+ Politics, examples of progressive change, and the work that’s yet to be done.
Living under the threat of deportation is a terrifying reality for many in America. The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) act offers some respite from this fear for many, but it is far from a permanent solution, and it’s future is unsure at best.
This week, Steve and Richie are joined by writer and political analyst, Nanjala Nyabola, to talk about the causes and complexities of the refugee crisis.
The Olympics. Philosophy. Big marble statues of naked dudes wrestling. Lots of extraordinary things came from Ancient Greece, Direct Democracy being chief among them.
Happy 4th of July! Join Steve and Richie as they celebrate American independence in their time honoured tradition, which is to say discussing the history and politics of a different country.
