The Good Information Project is launching The Good Information Podcast

Jan 7, 2023

THE GOOD INFORMATION Project has spent the last year doing some big, in-depth reporting on the biggest issues facing Ireland and Europe.

Now, we’re launching a new way for you, our readers, to catch up with all of this coverage.

The Good Information Podcast, hosted by Journal Media Managing Editor Susan Daly, will help you dive in to some of Ireland and the EU’s most pressing concerns and take you to the heart of the matter with help from our reporters, expert contributors to our Open Newsroom events, and exclusive data from independent polling company Ireland Thinks.

Each episode will feature interviews with reporters and contributors who immersed themselves in the topics that we’ve covered since March 2021, including Brexit, the future of working, public transport, housing, gender equality and more. 

The opening episode focuses on the idea of a shared island, and what conditions will need to be met before a United Ireland comes into clearer view. We discuss in detail attitudes on both sides of the border, the economic implications of such a move, and whether we can look to Europe for any precedent.
