On this week's Scoop, we have a lot to unpack. The Durham Report has been released, how the Irish Times got in some hot water after an AI scandal, and how the Nextdoor App is vastly different between red and blue states. First, Phelim meets with Senior Editor at The Federalist, John Davidson, to break down the Durham Report. This is not something you want to miss! We have always known how corrupt the FBI and Deep State are, but the Durham Report findings truly take it to a whole new level. Next, the Irish Times found themselves in the middle of a scandal when a man pitched a piece using AI while depicting a stereotypical “Woke” woman. Phelim also gets into how Wokeness has taken over everything, including the Nextdoor app. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/ap-scoop/message

Irish Times media columnist – and diehard Eurovision fan – Laura Slattery is heading to Liverpool this week for the annual song contest. It's hard not to feel upbeat in the face of all the positivity, giddiness and glittery glamour that comes with Eurovision but if the past several years are anything to go by, the odds are not in Ireland's favour.Our entry this year, We Are One by Wild Youth, will be doing well to make it past the the semi-finals. And to think we once ruled Eurovision!With our glory days firmly behind us, Laura teases out why our success rate is now so dire – but why it's important that we still try. And as a seasoned fan, who has actually listened to all the entries, she gives her predictions on who will win, and who should. Presented by Bernice Harrison. Produced by Suzanne Brennan.

Sonia is back in Portland after a brief stop at a relay carnival like no other - The Penn Relays. We get some of the sights and sounds of the big event including Villanova's dramatic win in the men's mile relay and Marcus O'Sullivan's emotional post race interview. "The memories that are made last forever and they are magic" but at some point you have to come back to earth and get out to train again. That's the position many people find themselves in after a marathon. What better time to look the most basic part of how you run? The petrol you put in your engine is a simple way of looking at it but when it comes to food the choice is not as simple as petrol or diesel. In a world of experts everyone is an idiot. Sonia has a way of peeling back the nonsense and stripping away the silly stuff that might get in the way of your ability to make good choices at the fridge. Together we sift through some of the harder questions on this subject and some of the guiding principles she has espoused in her Irish Times articles over the years. Good fats, the traffic light system, the formula and the role of sugar in what a healthy life looks like, all come under Sonia's microscope in today's nutrition episode. We even have time to go around the Strava parishes to see which runners have stood out to Ireland's GOAT this week. As mentioned, you can find double size episodes each week and gain access to hundreds of superb ad free episodes and training tips from Sonia over on www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad - Patrons are the life blood of the show.

Tánaiste Micheál Martin's rant in the Dáil was the first point of discussion on the podcast's round-up this week. The rant was aimed at the brand of investigative journalism being carried out by The Ditch, journalism that Jennifer Bray and Pat Leahy agree, 'stands on its own'. And while the Tánaiste's outburst was uncharacteristic, Pat felt it 'shouldn't distract from the questions' Fianna Fail TD Niall Collins had to be asked relating to the purchase of a vacant site in Co Limerick by his wife in 2008, even if the story isn't exactly 'Watergate'. Jennifer explains how the provision of abortion care in this country is 'not serving women as the law stipulated', and getting an opinion from senior politicians on barrister Marie O'Shea's independent report has proved to be challenging to say the least.Plus, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar played ‘one of his greatest hits' this week when promising to cut taxes for those earners who are simply paying too much of it.And the team talk about some of the best Irish Times content of the week, including:Newton Emerson on how we could potentially contribute to the subvention scheme in Northern IrelandDiarmaid Ferriter gives a potted history of farmer parties in IrelandMiriam Lord explains the Kit-Kat apology and Niall Collins Hosted on Acast.

Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael
On this edition of Parallax Views, Fintan O'Toole, long-time journalist of The Irish Times, joins us to discuss his acclaimed new book We Don't Know Ourselves: A Personal History of Modern Ireland. Although the book is not exactly a memoir, it is a sweeping journey through the decades of Ireland's evolution from the late 1950s through to today from the perspective of Fintan himself. As someone who lived through the turbulence of the Troubles, the bombings carried out by the Irish Republican Army (IRA), and the Good Friday Agreement, Fintan is uniquely able to tell the story of Ireland in from the mid-20th century to the present. In addition to all of this, Fintan and I will also delve into the issue of Brexit, the possibility of Irish reunification, and the rise of English nationalism and the Little England mentality. Fintan will also comment on the differences between English nationalism and Irish nationalism, give details on the Northern Ireland conflict ( aka The Troubles) and its complexity (we'll discuss not only the IRA but also North Irish Unionists like Ian Paisley), what it means to be Irish, national identity and Catholic identity in Ireland, the theme of "Unknown Knowns" and "Doubleness" in Fintan's personal history of Ireland, Catholic Church child sex abuse scandals in Ireland, conservatism and social control, Us Vs. Them mentalities, Irish economist and diplomat T.K. Whitaker and the Irish gambit, Irish composer Seán Ó Riada and traditional Irish music, the European Union and national identities, and much, much more!

The controversial decision to allow the no-fault eviction ban lapse on March 31st has barely left the news cycle since the Minister for Housing announced it three weeks ago. Darragh O'Brien insists that reimposing the embargo would exacerbate the housing supply crisis. Meanwhile, thousands of renters brace themselves for potential Notices to Quit and homeless services voice concerns over their capacity to cope with the fallout. In a country where property has traditionally been seen as a route to financial security, landlords and renters are on a collision course of competing interests. But are the rest of us standing idly by as human tragedies play out, and should they override an investor's right to their asset?

His classmates knew him as Victor Muller Ferreira, a Brazilian national, eager to further his education and his prospects in Ireland. Five years on from his graduation, Cherkasov is in Brazil serving a 15 year prison sentence for several counts of fraud. And now, the Trinity graduate is facing fresh charges in the US, for acting as an illegal agent of the Russian intelligence service; in other words – a spy. Irish Times public affairs editor Simon Carswell explains how Cherkasov was busy making connections but unusually careless about leaving an information trail.

Gary Cooke visits Peter O Reilly in his Dublin home to look back on his International Cricketing Career and his time in the professional game. Peter was educated in the city at Belvedere College and at aged 18, he made his debut in first-class cricket for Ireland against Scotland at Edinburgh in 1982. Peter spent 1983 and 1984 in England playing for Warwickshire Second XI, but was unable to force his way into the first eleven. He made a second first-class appearance for Ireland in 1984 against Scotland at Glasgow. A fast bowler, O'Reilly took 5 wickets across his two first-class matches, at an average of 16.20, with best figures of 3/43. After two seasons in England, Peter returned to Ireland to study art and history at University College Dublin. After graduating, he taught history at St. Andrew's College, Dublin. Peter briefly returned to the Irish side in 1990, playing minor matches against the touring New Zealanders, as well as touring Zimbabwe. Following the death of The Irish Times cricket correspondent Sean Pender, Peter left his teaching job to fill the vacant cricket correspondent job at the newspaper. Peter became their rugby correspondent in 1995, a position he also held at various times with the Sunday Tribune and the Irish Independent. He is the current Irish rugby correspondent for The Sunday Times. Peter has written books on Irish rugby, including the acclaimed Ireland and the Triple Crown, The Full Bag of Chips, released in 2004. His daughter, Lucy O'Reilly, was selected to play for the Irish women's cricket team in her early teens.

One issue has dominated the agenda on what was an already busy week for politics. The decision to lift the eviction ban was a shock reversal of what was expected from Tuesday's cabinet meeting, according to Jack Horgan-Jones. The maelstrom of personal stories from worried renters gives the opposition an easily-understood attack line from now until the next election. Coalition tensions are also mounting over plans to reduce private car usage, with Green ambitions to introduce congestion charges. Cormac McQuinn also highlights the potential minefield for the government if it opts for holding three referendums relating to gender equality in November.

Introducing him at the United States Senate in 2015, Ted Cruz called Mark Steyn "an international bestselling author, a Top Five jazz recording artist, and a leading Canadian human rights activist". All of which happens to be true. Mark is the author of After America, which was a Top Five bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada; America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It, a New York Times bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada; and his most recent bestseller, The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. His most recent CD is his cat album, dedicated to his own beloved cat Marvin: Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats was a Number One jazz bestseller, a Top Twenty album on the Billboard chart, and a Top Thirty album on Amazon's pop chart. "A Marshmallow World", his Christmas single with Jessica Martin, reached Number Seven on Amazon's easy listening bestsellers, and Number 41 on their main pop chart. Their subsequent full-length Christmas album, Making Spirits Bright, reached Number Four on the jazz chart. "Nine Lives", the song he co-wrote with Kevin Amos, was a Top Thirty smash on the Moldovan Hit Parade. Thank you, Moldova! Steyn's human rights campaign to restore free speech to Canada led to the repeal by Parliament of the notorious "Section 13" hate-speech law, a battle he recounts in his book Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech And The Twilight Of The West. Mark hosts The Mark Steyn Show, which airs every evening Monday to Thursday. He also presents Steyn's Song of the Week every Sunday afternoon on Serenade Radio. In New York he can be heard with his longtime EIB comrade, Bo Snerdley, every Tuesday on 77 WABC. For a decade and a half until Rush's death, Mark was a hugely popular guest-host of America's Number One radio show The Rush Limbaugh Program. He was also a favorite guest-host of America's Number One cable show Tucker Carlson Tonight, and hosted its lead-in-show Fox News Primetime. He regularly drew some of the highest ratings in all US television as a host for Tucker and other top shows. With fans around the world, Steyn has appeared on stages across the planet from Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. His 2016 nationwide tour of Australia was sold out coast to coast. He has spoken in the Canadian Parliament, the Ontario Parliament, the Danish Parliament, and the Australian Parliament, where he was introduced by the then Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop. Over the years, Mark's writing on politics, arts and culture has been published in almost every major newspaper around the English-speaking world, including Britain's Daily Telegraph, Canada's National Post, The Australian, The Irish Times, The Jerusalem Post, The Wall Street Journal, and many more. Mark's other books include A Song For The Season, Mark Steyn's Passing Parade, Mark Steyn From Head To Toe and The Face Of The Tiger. His personal view of musical theatre, Broadway Babies Say Goodnight, is an acknowledged classic published to critical acclaim in London, and to somewhat sniffier notices in New York. https://www.steynonline.com/ https://twitter.com/marksteynonline Freedom isn't free - James needs your support to continue creating The Delingpod.

In this episode of the cauldron we have Dr. Sharon Blackie; award-winning writer, psychologist and mythologist. Her highly acclaimed books, lectures and workshops are focused on the development of the mythic imagination, and on the relevance of myth, fairy tales and folk traditions to the personal, cultural and environmental problems we face today.As well as writing five books of fiction and nonfiction, including the bestselling If Women Rose Rooted, and her new book Hagitude, her writing has appeared in anthologies, collections and in several international media outlets – among them the Guardian, the Irish Times, the i and the Scotsman. Her books have been translated into several languages, and she has been interviewed by the BBC, US public radio and other broadcasters on her areas of expertise. Her awards include the Roger Deakin Award, and a Creative Scotland Writer's Award.Sharon is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and has taught and lectured at several academic institutions, Jungian organisations, retreat centres and cultural festivals around the world. Her TEDx talk on the mythic imagination can be viewed here.During the episodeWe delve deep into the world of wise and influential women in native mythology and what this means for navigating peri-menopause and elderhood. We ask Sharon what we can learn from the myths embedded in our cultures. We take a look at the profession of midwifery as traditionally midwives were the older women, not mothers themselves or past the mothering stage. We talk about how it is this group of women that can be leading the changes in the birth world. Not leaving it only to the younger midwives to fight. We discuss the overarching patriarchal messages which purport that menopause is an ‘illness' to be fixed, cured, or masked so we can continue to look like young maidens.And we hear about the power of elderhood, and what we can learn even if we are still in our mother years or just coming into perimenopause.LINKS:Dr Sharon BlackieHagitudeSupport the show Produced and edited by Katie James - Support the show via our Patreon page or at BuyMeACoffee Music Joseph McDade Like this podcast?

Once Upon A Crime | True Crime
In this second part of a two-part episode, in their quest to be transformed into vampires, Daniel and Manuela Ruda conclude that the only way to prove their loyalty to Satan is by performing a human sacrifice. Their crime would be described as “a picture of cruelty and depravity” such as had never been seen before in the German town of Witten. The subsequent trial would become a media circus with the two perpetrators proudly displaying their bizarre antics in front of the press and the public.
