Episode 68 - Dee Woods
Many of you are married. Many of you kiss the other half goodbye in morning, go to work, and regale each other with stories of the day when you reunite over dinner in the evening. Dee Woods does not. She goes to work every day with her husband, Marty Miller (episode 27 of this podcast) to do Morning Glory, the breakfast show on Radio Nova. Dee and Marty in the morning have become a fixture of morning radio in Dublin, and it's fair to say they do have some chemistry, all things considered! I chat to Dee about how her ambitions lay in journalism before she began her radio career, making the progression from the news room to behind the mic as a presenter. We chat about the challenges of breakfast radio, those early starts, and working with the other half. There's also a quite brilliant voice-over in a camper van story in there too. Follow Dee on Twitter @RaDeeOh or check her out weekdays on Morning Glory on
Episode 67 - Adam Buxton
On this week's show it was a pleasure to chat with Adam Buxton. Normally the podcasts are recorded in our studio in Dublin, but because Adam was not, and is not to this day, in Dublin, we used a thing called ipDTL which makes it sound like we're in the same place. I wanted to talk to him not simply because he is a very talented and entertaining man, but also because he's a huge David Bowie fan. This is because I am also a huge David Bowie fan. Not in terms of physical size, neither of us are huge like like an ogre or a planet, but we both just love him. So, we chat about that, Bowie's music and films, his other-worldliness, and his influence as an artist. I explain why I didn't like The Revenant, we try and uncover the correct term for a specific affliction, Adam's own excellent podcast – which you can find here – and lots more besides. It was a fun chat, and I really hope you enjoy it. Find Adam on Twitter @adambuxton or visit the official Adam Buxton website of Adam Buxton at
Episode 66 - Jim O'Neill
Jim O’Neill has one of the most distinctive voices on Irish radio. It’s deep man, deeeeeep. Depending on your age you might remember him from RTE Radio 2 with his sidekick ‘Thing’, or from his time with Century Radio or 98FM. Today he’s with Today FM presenting ‘On the road’, classic anthems and great driving music. We chat about his start in radio, why RTE bosses got rid of his Thing character, his time working with Chris Cary at Nova International, his love of music (to play as a DJ and a musician), living in South Africa and voice-tracking his show from there, and lots more. You can catch on the road every Sunday night on Today FM at 7pm.
