  • Ida trodde hun hadde alt helt til hun ble dumpa av mannen hun trodde skulle bli faren til barna hennes. Plutselig måtte Ida takle livet på egenhånd.

I podcasten "Ida med hjertet i hånden" skal Ida Fladen møte mennesker med ulike syn på relasjoner og kjærlighet, folk som dumper, blir dumpa, som lever alene, er skilt, aldri har hatt kjæreste, ikke kan leve uten kjæreste og har andre interessante historier om kjærlighet.

  • Is it possible for an American Vice President to carry out a criminal enterprise inside the White House and have nobody remember? To have one of the most brazen political bribery scandals in American history play out before the country while nobody’s paying attention? In her first original podcast, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow goes back 45 years to dig into a story that got overshadowed in its day. There’s intrigue. Corruption. Envelopes of cash delivered to the White House. It’s a story that’s not well known, but it probably should be. Especially today. Bag Man. A Rachel Maddow podcast from MSNBC. Launching October 30th.

  • 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.
