Enjoy show . Have started my own podcasts

Finding a podcast very difficult

Love the show. Can’t get podcasts referred to in programme. Edith Eger is one such example. In today’s show Brendan said he would upload the interview he did with her last year ...... no sign yet!

Great format. Dreadful presenter.

Brendan couldn’t lace Marian’s boots. Too busy interjecting with glib comments and his own opinions to allow a worthwhile conversation to develop. Please RTE, put ANYONE else into this slot.
