It's election campaign time, which means for the next month Una and Andrea will be covering the general election, but a little differently to everyone else. No doses, no debates, no clickbait. We want to talk about big ideas and issues. We kick off our first election special with the king of campaign ephemera: Alan Kinsella of Irish Election Literature. Alan is in the studio to discuss the semantics of sloganeering. Also on the pod, we outline how we're covering the election and why. There's also devastation in UI HQ over J-Lo's Oscar snub, and Andrea tackles certain tech company tweets, which is extra dangerous ever since she took up axe-throwing.
