This week we have a very special edition of the Coronapod as, for the first time of this bonus series, we have two guests for you in the form of economist David McWilliams and author Maeve Galvin.
In the first half of this episode David speaks to Jarlath about why it's vital that we see the economy to be 'in hibernation' right now, what he thinks will change when the pandemic is over and a fascinating discussion which addresses the question that is on everybody's mind - why can't we just print more money?
Later in the episode Maeve offers a refreshing perspective on the pandemic in her discussion about her time working on the Care and Support programme in Nigeria and the levels of burnout experienced by passionate NGO workers on the frontline. Maeve also explains the trends for governments to have a reliance on these NGOs and the impact that has on a country in need.
To hear about why Maeve decided to move away from the hierarchies that she experienced working in media and her time spent alongside Jarlath on RTÉ's The Panel in the early days of both of their careers, become a patron of An Irishman Abroad for just the price of a pint on www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad. You will also gain access to the entire back-catalogue of over 250 Irishman Abroad episodes that are not available on iTunes.
Be sure to get a copy of Maeve's book The Saviours, which is available in all good book stores.
