Pádraic Fogarty loves nature. His nature-themed writing, advocacy and activism spans over two decades. So it was a shock to many to see that he had resigned from the Irish Wildlife Trust over a blog post that upset the Irish Farmers Association.
He joins us to talk about how it all went down, why he he doesn’t regret the ‘lurching to the far right’ comment that has seen him be attacked across social and indeed parts of the mainstream media. Where to next for Pádraic? Why did the IWT cave to the IFA? Who is the modern far right? We get into it.
