Literary Friction is a conversation about books and ideas, hosted by friends Carrie and Octavia. Each month they interview an author about their book and build the show around a related theme – anything from resistance to coastlines to corpses. Listen in for lively discussion, book recommendations and a little music too. https://www.nts.live/shows/literaryfriction
Hyperallergic is a forum for serious, playful, and radical thinking about art in the world today. https://hyperallergic.com/
Vanessa Moss, RHA Development suggests:

Dublin suggestions are: Book a free ticket to visit the RHA: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/rha-gallery-admission-tickets-113466535462 for a final chance to view Joseph Heffernan, Neil Carroll, Alan Phelan and selections from the RHA Collection.
