In this episode Irish Times journalists Polly Dennison and Roisin Ingle talk to host Kathy Sheridan about Donald Trump’s racism and the four congresswomen of colour who have stood up to him. Known now as The Squad they are Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. Polly also tells us about Zara’s polka dot dress of the summer (“it’s horrendous on me” she says). Also in the episode, our Book Club returns with a very funny chat about How to Fail by Elizabeth Day. And Rachel Lee, a swimming firefighter from Dublin, tells us about her biggest challenge yet, crossing the North Channel.
