Lorcan Collins On James Connolly

In the opening episode of Season 3 of the Pod we have an interview with James Connolly biographer Lorcan Collins.
In a wide ranging discussion Lorcan and Jim Slaven discuss Connolly’s life and times.

To win the battle of ideas we need to build and sustain independent platforms for progressive working class perspectives. To help this effort we have established a Patreon page. A video of this episode is available to supporters at Patreon.
