The Echo Chamber podcast.
Hosts Tony Groves and Martin McMahon (left) are joined in the ‘tortoise shack’ by Joan Collins, Independent TD for Dublin South Central.
When the book is written on this age of austerity, Joan will be remembered as a constant voice for the ordinary citizen. Her challenging of the promissory note alone was a battle cry that rejected the “we are where we are” BS that is used to defend the many crises facing the country.
We discuss: The day Joan confronted outgoing Taoiseach Bertie Ahern; the worsening housing and homelessness emergency; what is next for the Irish Labour Party.; How close we really came to a Christmas election. And how, by having open conversations, the #RepealThe8th referendum can be won.
Not sure there’s any strong language, for once!
