EPISODE 3: MAYO: THE PLANET IS ON FIRE — can the green wave extinguish the flames?

This week we’re scratching our heads and wondering what the point will be of riches and economic success if we’re all actually killed off and we’re not the only ones. The Local and European elections were swept by a Green Wave that gave a very clear message that our priorities are very much on humanity’s survival. But is it too little too late and will those in power finally not just listen, but actually make the changes we’re all screaming for? One person not screaming but calming and rationally making her point and slaying in the Primetime debate is The Green Party’s Saoirse McHugh. She became the unlikely star of the recent European Parliament elections receiving over 51,000 first preference votes and we were charmed to have her in the studio to find out where she came from and where she’s going.

Given that we’re focusing on science and facts, it was glorious to have Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shuilleabháin as our Mayo rep. With a degree in theoretical physics, a PhD in maths education, current lecturer in maths in UCD she’s all about the QED and she tells us why it’s a fact that Mayo is one dreamy county. She is also a broadcaster, musician and a proud Mayo woman.

Obvs we have Get In The Sea, Our Fave Bits and this week’s Tuna Chicken Roll. Let’s get right on top of this Green Wave and get stuck in to Mayo.
