The Explainer: Our favourite explanations of the year
Here are some of the best bits of The Explainer from 2021.

ANOTHER YEAR DRAWS to a close, and so too does another year of The Explainer podcast.

It was a year dominated by Covid, as you might have noticed, and there was no shortage of new developments to explain there.

This ranged from why cases kept rising despite Ireland’s high vaccination rate to the never-ending antigen test debate.

But there was plenty more beyond Covid to look at. As Afghanistan fell to the Taliban what did it mean for women living there? Or what is the mica scandal, and how has it affected homeowners?

We even looked at how you get nominated for an Oscar.

Our team cast their minds back to previous episodes and dug out their favourite moments from the past year.
