Going forward in a world with new buzz words like fluid situations, the new normal and we remain cautious, a time where so many people are looking for the answers to the big questions. In the Everywhere We Go podcast I am simply asking you to look back, relive past moments from your childhood, tell your stories, share your memories, perhaps it will lead you to rekindle lost friendships. Growing up in Moatview Courts made me the person I am today, I had the best mates and we have some stories and I wanted to share those stories with you in the hope that you will hear a bit of your own in ours and just maybe you will want to share them with my audience and I.

    Barry & Gillian

    Barry & Gillian

    On this week’s episode, I sit down with Gillian and Barry.
    This episode could’ve been done one on one but I wanted to speak to them as a couple, it also could’ve been done in many parts as we didn’t get to talk about everything this couple has been through.
    Barry from Belfast met Gillian on a night out and their journey took them from Belfast to Dublin, onto Australia, and back Belfast and Dublin again as they try to escape the hold depression had on Barry.
    Working on the sites led to an injury that started Barry on a rollercoaster true depression blackhole episodes and suicidal thoughts.
    Barry’s last hope was a Psilocybin in a clinical trial but his mum passed away and Barry was too sick to attend. A chance Facebook invite to a retreat save Barry’s life forever.
    The love between these two is palpable they have been through the wringer and out the other side if I ever struggle it’s These to you would want in my corner.

    On this week’s episode, I sit down with Paul Stenson.
    This is an emotionally charged episode, 15 minutes in I want to reach across the table and hug him.
    As Paul sit across from me I soon find out that behind the Charleville lodge Paul and the white moose café Paul, is a man who has struggled for a very long time, struggled with his shame of being gay, struggled with adoption and struggled with alcohol.
    Paul talks to me about these struggles and how with the help of a counselor he channeled these struggles into positives and into a hugely successful business with his solely owned white moose cafés.
    We talk about the controversy and the PR stunts that have resulted in him and never having to pay a penny for advertising.
    The Irish Times once described Paul as being the charmless proprietor of the publicity-hungry Charleville lodge but Paul is utterly charming simply someone who has coined the art of not giving a shit.
    Paul thank you for sitting down with me and letting us get to know you that bit better
