    Episode 72 - No Place Like Homo

    Episode 72 - No Place Like Homo

    The lads are still recovering from their first night out on the tiles and are only itching to tell you all about it. They talk about all the rides in the Olympics and Joe Wicks being the ultimate himbo. 
    They then chat to the living legend and Gaff Goddess herself, Laura de Barra.
    From her helpful home hack videos to the success of her best-selling book, Laura details how she became the queen of She-IY™. She also tells us to detract attention from walls that are pure purple and manky when you’re renting.

    Ep 71 - Ten A's Twomey

    Ep 71 - Ten A's Twomey

    The episode starts off with Kevin taking the piss out of PJ for purchasing a rose gold fan because PJ has always been so vocal about the fact that he despises anything in that colour. And because Kevin’s hairdryer blew up just before the record they put out an appeal to Dyson to send them a fan and new hairdryer. Pretty please?
    Confessions are back due to popular demand and of course they’re as chaotic as ever. From faking Leaving Cert results to a stunning life hack on how to quickly get rid of a tricky number two, the girlies do not disappoint with their disclosures. Also find out Kevin’s nickname that he swears he didn’t come up with himself in school.

    Ep 70 - Baby On Board

    Ep 70 - Baby On Board

    The lease on the lads’ gaff is nearly up and they’re contemplating moving elsewhere but Kevin has grown too attached to having a bedroom on the ground floor and reckons he would fare well in a bungalow. They also discuss a wedding they’re both due to attend and because Kevin won't know anyone there he's planning to adopt a different persona for the duration of the event.
    They then have a chat about starting a family as a queer person and speak with Ranae von Meding (IG: @ranaevonmeding), the CEO and co-founder of Equality For Children, an organisation who are doing stunning work fighting for the rights of children of LGBTQ+ families.

    Ep 69 - Up The Rasa

    Ep 69 - Up The Rasa

    The lads starts off by issuing a public apology to their fave Roy Keane after Kevin’s brother informed them that he did not in fact throw a boot at Mick McCarthy. Mortified. The pair then discuss a theme that’s a combination of two of their favourite things; summer and camp - summer camp! They discuss their experiences of summer camps in their youth, the struggle to make friends whilst there, teaching kids at camps and the iconic Irish drink known simply as Rasa.

    Ep 68 - Cirque Du So Gay

    Ep 68 - Cirque Du So Gay

    The boys have one question and one question only; when are the Euros over? They can’t stand all the football lads being loud and causing a raucous but are both in agreement that Roy Keane is a ride. Prompted by having the word ‘gay’ shouted at them this week by a stranger and because Pride month has just come to a close they talk about the importance of being proud 365 days a year and being visibly and unashamedly queer and all the work that is still left to be done to make the world a better place for the LGBTQ+ community.

    Ep 67 - Two Pumps for JLo

    Ep 67 - Two Pumps for JLo

    It’s been a week of makeovers girlies and the lads are only itching to tell all about their new looks. It appears the new aesthetics have been perfectly timed as Kevin and PJ also reveal that they’ve landed a new tv gig talking all things Love Island on The 6 O’ Clock Show and they are absolutely weak for themselves but are up in a heap because they’ve no nice clothes. Excitement aside, they turn their attention to conspiracy theories but in true I’m Grand Mam style it’s a bit of a struggle as they can’t wrap their heads around some of the more difficult concepts (still don’t have a clue what the Mandela Effect is). They also talk about The Illuminati, Shakespeare being a pure snake, celebs ordering kids on their pizza and Avril Lavigne dying a death. They also talk about some of their own conspiracy theories and share their plans of starting a new versh of the Feis Maitiú competition.
