Religion & Spirituality – Ireland – Recommended podcasts

  • From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Monday - with trailers on his Twitter page: @andrewgold_ok (https://twitter.com/AndrewGold_ok) and Instagram page: @andrewgold_ok (https://www.instagram.com/andrewgold_ok/) . 

    With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest. Some weeks it'll be with somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or the Australian Coffin Confessor, who is paid to reveal secrets at funerals . Other episodes will have interviews with such leading minds as Conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and feminist Helen Pluckrose.
