Podcast Ep. 39: #WeStandWithZoe, Easter Uprising Centenary & Brussels, Lahore Bombings

RD E39 Zoe Sugg, Ireland, Brussels

Another controversy involving Zoe “Zoella” Sugg, the centenary of Ireland’s Easter Uprising and a series of bombings in Brussels and Lahore are the three topics of this week’s podcast, where Jazza and Jimmy are back in the same place at the same time.

Beginning in Ireland, two Brits wonder why their knowledge of Irish history is so paltry. Are schools still whitewashing Britain’s colonial past, even with our closest neighbour?

We then turn to terrorist incidents in Brussels in Belgium and Lahore in Pakistan, discussing how the media covers such events and what role religion plays in both.

Finally, Jazza gives a little exclusive as the man who tweeted #WeStandWithZoe first in response to the Sun article calling Zoella too damn sexy for wearing knickers. How bloody dare she?!
