Episode Nine: Are the Presidential Election Candidates “Normal People”?

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” – President Trump, 12:06 am, May 31 2017.

This week on the podcast we are talking about the candidates of the 2020 US Presidential election. We’ll give you the 411 on the confirmed Republican and Democratic candidates, Trump and Biden, as well as some lesser known hopefuls running for office.

And join us in Sligo, Ireland, where we are also talking about the complex and nuanced romance of Connell and Marianne, in the new Stan series ‘Normal People’ adapted from Sally Rooney’s Booker prize nominated novel of the same name. And of course, a conversation about Normal People would not be complete without paying homage to @Connellschain.
