Simon McGarr has been publishing short, 1-3 minute long, podcasts each day during the Irish election campaign, summing up his thoughts on the issues and debates (of which he’s not that impressed).
For anyone like me with an all too sparse working knowledge of what’s going on, it’s a good listen. And it has been the merit of being short and personal. You can find the podcasts on tuppenceworth.ie/blog, Audioboo or iTunes.
Do let me know in the comments below if you’ve any other recommendations of short-form material looking at the elections.
