What a Fantastic Podcast with such a great idea behind it

What a Fantastic Podcast with such a great idea behind it. Everyone must give this a go!

Gem of a podcast

Happened upon this podcast when they had Marina Carr as a guest. Listening to episodes with recognisable guests after that episode, I wound up hooked to the show.

Its premise bridges the gap between the familiar and unpredictable excellently- as you know more or less where you’ll end up, but have no idea of the detours you’ll take getting there.

Many of my favourite episodes have been with people I’d never known of before- the beauty of the bingo machine is the funny and light-hearted or quite profound tones some conversations can take on.

I suppose the greatest compliment I can pay the show is I’ve listened back through every episode, and eagerly await its arrival with the beginning of each week.

(P.S. in listening to this you will learn more about Dublin/Irish theatre than you ever envisioned, haha)
