    Episode 107 - Kieran Creevy - Expedition Chef

    "Think about your favourite meal from a restaurant or your home. You can probably immediately recall the smells and tastes of those dishes!Remember the last time you went for a hike, paddle, surf or climb and how good that simple sandwich tasted afterwards?Now, combine the best of both these worlds! Proper food in the outdoors."This is on Kieran's website (http://www.kierancreevy.com/#expedition-chef) and he talks to me about his passion of the outdoors, travelling, sports and of course cooking.
    Kieran's latest expedition was in the artic circle working alongside Adventure.ie. (https://www.adventure.ie/)

    Episode 106 - Orla Ni hAonigh - Campaigner

    Episode 106 - Orla Ni hAonigh - Campaigner

    I spoke to Orla in April 2020 over Zoom.
    She spoke to me from the hospice in the a suburb of Dublin where she had been residing.
    We weren't able to meet face to face due to the Covid 19 restrictions.
    And to this day I don't know what Orla looks like.
    She had been campaigning for the Dying with Dignity Bill to be passed and today, by pure coincidence, the Bill has been re-submitted to the Government for consideration.
    It was Orla's wish to release the podcast after her passing.
    Below is an extract from a number of email exchanges that we had.
    "As I mentioned, it was good to listen back to. 
    I feel the Social Fabric Podcast is a force for good in the world and am proud to have been a part of it.
    And please share it after I've passed in a few more days time.
    Orla "
    Died 28th August 2020
    May she Rest In Peace.

Episode 75 - Fiona English

Such a beautiful, honest conversation. This reminded me of the importance of being yourself, following your joy and helping the world in that way, not trying to steer a conversation or preach to others. Simply be curious and excited to have conversations with others and be open to other views. It reminded me to be humble, to come back to simplicity. Thank you for opening up a conversation about spirituality and opening up my mind for deeper reflection.

JC, IRL ,

Simple conversations delivered with great insight through music.

In world filled with complications this is a beautiful podcast that just explores the humanity of the individual, what makes them tick and when was their die cast.
