The Explainer: Our favorite explanations of the year

The team behind the podcast run through their favourite explanations from the past year.

EARLIER THIS YEAR, TheJournal.ie launched a new podcast: The Explainer.

Aimed at taking a deeper look at one big news story each week, we’ve now hit episode #44 and been named as one of the Best Listens of 2019 by Apple Podcasts.

Since March we’ve covered everything from the trouble Prince Andrew has caused for the Royal Family to Patrick Nevin and the ‘Tinder rape case’, as well as looking at whether Ireland can grow its own medicinal cannabis and why exactly there’s so much controversy over the Public Services Card.

In today’s special edition, the whole team sit down in studio – presenter Sinead O’Carroll and the show’s producers Christine Bohan, Aoife Barry, and Nicky Ryan – to take a look back at all our episodes this year. 

The team run through our favourite explanation: the moments from the past year when our expert contributors set something clear in our minds or offered a new piece of information that stuck with us.
