Welcome to Andy McGibbons' Politics, Culture and some other shit Podcast. I mostly talk about the politics of Ireland, the northern bit in which I live and beyond. I cover international stories from an anti imperialist stance. I advocate for a New Ireland united and free. I also like to talk a bit about culture, I play in a band called The Bonnevilles and have toured our beautiful planet and in that touring have met and seen many wonderful things which I like to share.
