Irish novelist, playwright and screenwriter Roddy Doyle joins us to talk about modern Ireland. The relationship between Ireland and England has changed in his lifetime. What prejudices have been left behind? What else is different? What is the impact of the World Cup? How does the conflict in the Middle East reflect the history of the Irish Republican Army? We'll also discover the title of his favorite John Ford film, why he likes working with high school students, and his favorite new slang word. This is an archived edition of "Weekday."
