    Ep 80 - Big Ick Energy

    Ep 80 - Big Ick Energy

    It’s been a hectic few days for the boys as PJ tells us of his ordeal sorting out flights to Oz for his mam and Kevin shares the details of a new foxy friend who has decided to pay him a visit at his house in London. Then prompted by the talk of someone bringing their dog on a first date they discuss icks; things that are instant turn-offs, making your skin crawl and killing your boner. The boys soon realise however that they’re kind of into a lot of the icks that the girlies have, especially Kevin when it concerns anything relating to the male foot.

    Ep 79 - Type 2 Liabetes

    Ep 79 - Type 2 Liabetes

    The lads are are still recovering after Dublin Pride having hosted the main stage at Mother but still have the energy to divulge the details of the weekends’ antics. Kevin also finds the energy to have a go at the PR companies for being cheapskates and only sending bits to PJ because he lives in Dublin.
    They then go from reality to the world of fiction and discuss everything to do with telling lies. Growing up gay they had to lie about who they were in order to protect themselves which makes them question if it is okay to lie sometimes. They also dress Kevin’s lying compulsion and he comes clean about his condition and read out chaotic lies submitted by listeners which makes them feel better about their lie-telling tendencies.

    Ep 78 - Work the Runway

    Ep 78 - Work the Runway

    And just like that the boys are back into the swing of things. They’re on a high off the back of the official release of the single and are slightly raging that Beyoncé dropped her bop in the same week. Also in the same week Harry styles was spotted sea swimming in Dublin and it made the lads h word.
    Prompted by the pandemonium taking place within airports across the globe, Kevin and PJ tackle catching flights and not feelings as the theme for the week. They discuss airport pet peeves, the unmistakable energy exuded by cabin crew and their thoughts around joining the mile high club.

    Ep 77 - Back with a Bop

    The wait is finally over. The boys are back and they couldn’t be more excited.They get you up to speed on some of the things that have changed since the last time they recorded. Amongst other things, PJ’s now based in Dublin, they’ve a new jingle for the podcast and everyone wants to shag Kevin. They speak about how obsessed they were with seeing ABBA Voyage but were petrified at the same time because it’s all a bit Black Mirror. They then debut their new single, the gay anthem of the summer, Fast Lane. Prompted by their new-found vocations as pop stars they discuss faking it until you make it and not having a notion about something but giving off the energy that you do.

Such an amazing podcast

I love listening to PJ and Kevin, it’s such a good podcast and an easy listen. I find myself listening at every chance that I get - in the car, doing the hoovering, in the gym, everywhere! They touch on really important topics all while putting their own spin on it and throwing in some humour. Alexa, play “simply the best” ⭐️
