A reader asked on Twitter why the Samuel Beckett and Tom Clarke bridges are so far apart, making for some long walks for pedestrians crossing the Liffey in the Docklands.

So we asked Stephen Bourke to go find the answer for him, a journey which touched on the history of the Docklands, the ferryboat business, a pile of tripe, and plans for two new bridges.

Stephen wrapped up what he found into a 16-minute programme, which we’re presenting here as the pilot episode for what we envision becoming a monthly podcast, No Stupid Questions. Have a listen, and let us know what you think.

Stephen Bourke is a freelance journalist, but more importantly, a second-generation Dub on both sides of the family. @anburcach
