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,
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'r
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 To
Simon Maher was one of the original founders of Phantom, the popular 'Indie' radio station. It began in a bedroom, moved to a garden shed, and after many years of trying, was awarded a licence in 2004. Due to an objection by another party, the

My guest on the show today is the third member of the Second Captains crew to drop into studio. After Eoin McDevitt (ep 11) and Ken Early (ep 15), Ciaran 'Murph' Murphy is next to chat about his rise to internet broadcasting based stardom. We t
My guest today is Eoghan McDermott, currently the presenter of the drive-time show on 2FM. Turns out he grew up just up the road from me – but obviously not at the same time. I was grown up when he was growing up, but still! We chat about his f
When a man brings his own headphones to an interview, you know you're about to sit down with somebody interesting. Morgan C Jones is an actor, writer, producer, voice-over artist, stand-up comedian and probably a few others things as well. We c
Sorry this episode is a day late. I try my best to stick to the Monday schedule, but sometimes life, work, or more work or extra life gets in the way. Still, I think the fact we had an election last Friday and I've got a new episode out on a Tu
This week I was delighted to be joined by Síle Seoige, radio presenter, TV presenter, MC, actress, singer, yoga teacher ... she does a lot. We chat about her media career, starting at 19 and being thrown in at the very deep end with little or n
Kevin Branigan is the Chief Executive at Radio Nova 100 Dublin. He's also one of the first guys I ever did radio with back when we were just teenagers broadcasting from high up the Dublin mountains. I couldn't remember how it was we got togethe
My guest on the show this week is writer Belinda McKeon. Her debut novel 'Solace' (2011), won the Irish Book of the Year award at the Irish book awards, and her second book 'Tender' was published last year. Having read both of them very recentl
My guest this week is 2FM presenter Tracy Clifford. She began her radio career, like so many of us, in the pirate world – this was the era of the 90s dance stations. She went to Ballyfermot to 'study', and almost immediately after leaving there
If you're of a certain vintage you'll remember Mike Moloney as one of the mainstays of late night radio in Dublin, and in Ireland. As presenter of The Night Train, when Mark Cagney wasn't doing it, and later Moloney after Midnight, his voice an
Some of you will know that part of what I do to earn a living is voice-over work. So, it was a real pleasure to chat this week to one of the legends of the Irish voice-over scene. Jonathan Ryan did his first gig back in the 80s, and he's been a
My guest on the show this week is Cormac Battle who, if you're young enough, you'll know as a presenter on 2FM in his own right, and as co-presenter and 'man who comes up with surreal ideas' on the Rick O'Shea show. However, you might remember
Today my guest is Leagues O'Toole, whose main gig right now is as a promoter with Aiken Promotions. Chances are you've been to one of his gigs at some point, and we start by discussing US comedians, like Marc Maron and Anthony Jesselnik, who ha
It's an absolute pleasure to welcome Tara Flynn back to the show this week. We first 'casted way back in episode 2, and so much has happened since that I had to ask her back on. In that first episode we talked a bit about social issues, such as
Hey folks, welcome to episode 50 of the podcast. A bit of a landmark, you have to say. If you've been here since the start, thanks very much for listening. If you're new to the show, check out the archives for some amazing chats with people lik
You might remember Nails Mahoney from such radio stations as Sunshine 101, Atlantic 252, 2FM, and 98FM to name just a few. His radio career has been long and varied, and in this episode I chat to him about his start in the industry as a rookie
On this week's show I chat with Donal Dineen who first came to prominence on the seminal music video show No Disco on RTE 2. He moved from there into radio, finding himself at the helm of two hugely influential shows. Firstly, Here Comes The Ni
Bernard Butler is a musician and record producer, known to lots of us as the guitarist with Suede, before that all went a bit wonky. Others might know the song 'Yes', by McAlmont and Butler, as one that became something of an anthem around the
It was an honour this week to chat to a real legend of Irish radio, Ian Dempsey. Ian began his career like many others on the first wave of pirate stations in Dublin, including ARD. He joined RTE in 1980 and was 2FM's most successful breakfast
If you're a lover of sport and radio, you'll be well aware of today's guest. Colm Parkinson is a former Gaelic Footballer, turned broadcaster. He's part of the Off The Ball team on Newstalk every evening, and by his own admission he can be a bi
Today's guest is singer/songwriter Daniel Anderson. You might have caught a recent YouTube video which saw him go door to door around Dublin to try and sell the record he'd made. It was a clever and innovative way to generate some buzz about hi
