Week two of the general election campaign is almost over and we’ve already had a TV debate and a drugs controversy.

On the Floating Voter podcast, the team look at the the head-to-head debate between Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin.

This included Mr Varadkar being forced to admit to using drugs in his youth and Mr Martin struggling to deal with a newly compassionate and gracious Taoiseach.

Meanwhile, the Political Team also discussed the row over the age for the State pension and how it could affect younger workers.

The canvass styles of Mr Varadkar and Mr Martin were also analysed.

Kevin Doyle and Philip Ryan discuss the reaction from the Taoiseach when he was asked if he has ever taken illegal drugs.
