The Explainer: Our favourite explanations of the year

Here’s the best bits of our podcast this year

WHAT A YEAR 2020 has been.

It’s a struggle to remember even half of what happened.

The trajectory of the past few months is laid out when you scroll back through episodes of The Explaine.

We asked in January how worried we in Ireland should be about this thing called the coronavirus. The following month we looked at how an Italy-style spread of Covid-19 could be avoided.

In May, we were still wondering what was going on with the formation of a government.

The team sat down in our respective homes and picked through the archive to bring you our favourite explanations of the year – and, believe it or not, they’re not all about Covid.
