    Father Ted Podcast S3E8 - Going to America

    Writers and producers Muireann McGinty and Dee Harvey dream big in the final ever episode of Father Ted!  😢

    After talking Tommy Tiernan off a ledge at a priest's convention Ted is  seduced by visions of a glamourous life in America, but can he really  leave Craggy Island and it's inhabitants behind?

    The episode takes a reflective tone towards the end, and we discuss  Kevin Spacey's relative anonymity in 1998, the draw of Magic America and  Radiohead: depressing or not?

    Father Ted Podcast S3E7 - Night of the Nearly Dead

    Father Ted Podcast S3E7 - Night of the Nearly Dead

    Kiel Cathers, lead singer of folk rock behemoths The Logues wards off  the huddled masses of Eoin McLove fans in this hilarious send up of  Daniel O’Donnell.

    Mrs Doyle is besotted when she wins a competition to have her beloved TV  host Eoin McLove visit her, but she's not the only one on the island  who wants to meet him. Dougal thinks he's very cheeky, Ted doesn't  approve of his poetry tastes and Jack waxes lyrical on the nature of  fandom.

    We also talk about treacherous male bonding games such as Eyeball  Chicken and Killerball, fainting Michael Jackson fans and false rumours  about Pope John Paul II.
