Adrian sits down with DIT head of design Barry Sheehan and freelance culture journalist Roisin Kiberd to talk about whether AirBnb is helping society or damaging it.

Sheehan, who rents out his one-bed house in Dublin using AirBnb, says that it’s not detracting from the rental stock available to struggling families

The panel also looks at the short New York Times career of Quinn Norton, whether journalists should be free to express opinions on Twitter and the new phenomenon of people picking fights with robots.
