    Episode 8 - Danielle Gollick and Rebecca Welch -

    Episode 8 - Danielle Gollick and Rebecca Welch -

    I caught up with Rebecca and Danielle - both previous guests on the Social Fabric Podcast (episode 78 and 73) to talk about the pandemic from a normal everyday life point of view. Rebecca is just outside New York City, Danielle is in Wexford, Pennsylvania.
    I was delighted to hear that the two of them got to know each other through the podcast and that once the pandemic is over they will hopefully meet and share a glass of wine. Strangely, we are all connected via stories of Mark Geary, Irish Musician, also a guest on the Social Fabric Podcast (episode 71)
    Hope you'll enjoy it.

    Episode 7 - David & Stephen Flynn - The Happy Pear - on reflection, coming home and their latest book

    Episode 7 - David & Stephen Flynn - The Happy Pear - on reflection, coming home and their latest book

    I sat with David and Stephen, at a safe and social distance, in the yard of their flagship cafe' in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. @thehappypear

    They spoke to me openly about how Covid19 has given them more time to reflect on their values, their ideals, how they would like to shape their future and the importance of "coming home"

    They have two more book coming out soon, the shop is due to reopen sometime in the near future and they are still as energetic as ever, but with a great reflective sense about them both.

    Hope you'll enjoy it.

    For this episode I caught up with Brian Pennie to find out a bit more about what life has been like since the release of his book "Bonus Time". @PennieBrian

    The book, his autobiography, about how change is possible, how he has transformed his life for the better.

    I first met with Brian in March 2019 for an episode of the Social Fabric Podcast, Number 47 and I was delighted to see him in flying form, doing well and enjoy his new found life.

    Episode 5 - Renato Pilu - On the Virus in the worst affected area in Italy to his love for Ireland and Rugby

    Episode 5 - Renato Pilu - On the Virus in the worst affected area in Italy to his love for Ireland and Rugby

    I bumped into Renato in Ernesto's, Rathmines, during a Mark Geary's concert.

    We kept in touch and I caught up with him last week to see what it was like in Italy at the moment.
    Renato lives on a few short kilometers from the epicentre of the Virus in Italy, close to Bergamo.

    He spoke to me about it and also about his love for Ireland, having created and run www.celticworld.it and when he played on stage with Glen Hansard.

    The conversation is in Italian (my first one!!)

    At the end of the podcast the song I play is performed by Renato and is a beautiful rendition of Simon & Garfunkel's tune..

    Enjoy.

    Episode 4 - Fiona English & Joakim Saflund on Spirituality

    Episode 4 - Fiona English & Joakim Saflund on Spirituality

    I have known Joakim for years and he was one of the first people I met that practiced yoga, studied Zen philosophy and spirituality.

    I met Fiona when we first recorded a podcast (Episode 75) and then again when she was part of the panel for our Do we really need another Guru? live event in the Whale Theatre in Greystones, Co. Wicklow. 

    She she researches, speaks and writes about Positive Psychology and she has recently  launched 'Exploring Spirituality', a series of projects aimed at creating open dialogue and conversations about spirituality in the 21st Century.

    I hope you'll enjoy it.
