And thus the inaugural year of our humble little podcast comes to an end. Steve and Richie are poised at the entrance to memory lane and are assuming a runners crouch. Join them, as they tear past 2017's key political milestones in a hasty and uncoordinated manner. There's also plenty of Christmas themed larks to help soften the experience of reliving the past year. Don't worry, this is a fun one. Thank you all so much for listening the past year. We love you all. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

New Episode! The boys sit down with comedian, author, actress, and all round wonderful human being, Tara Flynn, to discuss Ireland’s Eighth Amendment and the efforts being made to repeal it. 

Tara talks about the history of abortion on the island, some of the misinformation surrounding the subject, and ways to have constructive conversations with those of differing opinions.

In a little over a week, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize nominees list will be released. To get ready, Steve teaches Richie all about the awards history, purpose, and its best and worst winners. The boys also discuss some recent news stories on Brexit, the UN, and more. And, if all that wasn't enough, they also discuss dabbing, because this is a youthful and relevant show.
