The Suss X Echo Chamber Crossover

No need to wonder about the most ambitious crossover of all time anymore. The Suss' Glenn and Steph are joined in studio this week by Tony Groves (@trickstersworld) and Martin McMahon (@williamhboney1) of the Echo Chamber Podcast which celebrated 6 months of critical perspectives on Irish life and society. We ask the lads how they got to know one another, what drove them to want to start a political podcast and hear about some of their highlights from in excess of 50 episodes.

We work through a number of common gripes that the two podcasts have with traditional, legacy and mainstream media, spanning the tiresome Marian Finucane panels to the carnage in Independent News & Media. We try to get to the crux of why alternative media has never been more important and speculate as to how we can join the dots to create a more plural media landscape.

Strap in for an uncovering and untangling of the golden circle and how our small island nation’s elites seek to preserve their status at our expense.
