  • Good show

    A good show: particularly like the week trending on Friday and other slots too. Could be a bit more prompt uploading podcasts but generally good. Really enjoy the Cal Marion slot too. Overall a good show!

  • Hahaha Sarah McGuinness thinking the fake tan article had merit 😂 Absolutely delighted to see people trying to import identity politics and the makey-uppy nonsense of cultural appropriation to Ireland left with egg on their faces 😂

  • Love the show..

    But what’s the deal with the podcasts? Seems like everyone goes home early on Friday so podcasts done get uploaded until Monday.
