If you are anti capitalist and seek a new and better way of society to function, this is the podcast for you! While based in the West of Ireland we look at the world through an internationalist lens. We discuss all aspects of society, economics, history, the national question to feminism.
As Britain struggles to reposition its self after the fallout of Brexit and many reactionary figures south of the border jump on the United Ireland bandwagon, the prospect of an end to partition has never been nearer. In this episode we discuss a potential border poll and the type of Ireland that may emerge in its aftermath with Yes For Unity spokesperson Joe Mathews.
