We're discussing: Derry Girls / Series 2 / Episode 1 / 'Across the Barricade'
The gang are off on a cross community peace trip...but when it comes down to it are we really all that different? Maybe not. Pauline, Jeanie and Marie-Louise discuss the art of borrowing and how Derry band, The Undertones, owe a big debt to the late Nobel Prize Winner John Hume. They reminisce about the books by Joan Lingard whose Protestant girl/Catholic boy love stories gripped a generation of teens, 'Across the Barricades' being perhaps the best known. Is it ever OK to keep your toaster in a cupboard? Could ABBA have helped the peace process and do arms dealers have a patron Saint?
