  • From a Westboro Baptist Church defector and an ex-Hasidic Jew to the world's first ever blogger and teenage class president who confessed to being a pedophile, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Wednesday.


    It's been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Andrew has been making documentaries about bizarre, unusual and remarkable people around the world for a decade. He's done battle with an exorcist, taken on anti-abortionists and hunted for UFOs, all while living in six different countries and learning to speak five languages.


    In this podcast, he aims to get to the humanity of people living on the fringes, and introduce these people with diverse ways of looking at the world to the listener. It's not all deep and sad - he aims to get humour and fun out of these people, so the audience can also actually...be entertained! Follow him on twitter here @andrewgold_ok and check out his documentaries on his YouTube channel.


    Oh, and please do leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

  • The aim of this weekly podcast is to make economics easy, uncomplicated and accessible. With the world at a political, technological and financial tipping point, economics has never been so important to all of us and yet, it’s made inaccessible and complicated by so many.
    I’ve always thought what is complicated is rarely important and what is important is rarely complicated.

    That will be our motto.

    Every week we are going to tease out some big economic or political issue facing us, not just here in Ireland but in Europe and further afield. Globalisation has brought us all together. We all face similar challenges whether you live in Dublin, London, Minnesota or Milan.
