    #83 The Hannah Saunders Episode

    #83 The Hannah Saunders Episode

    Ahoy Hoy!
    Welcome to another The 80% Podcast, the podcast where I am 80% happy for the success of my guests.
    This week, it's Hannah Saunders!
    Hannah Saunders founded her PR company when she was just 25. It’s a business she knows inside out, her dad being a superstar in the same field. Hannah has been determined to carve her own path though and achieve success on her own terms and on the back of her own hard work. There is no coat tail riding here.
    Aside from building her business and representing both emerging and established Irish brands, Hannah has also built up her own personal fandom on Instagram with 31.7k followers wanting to know what’s she’s wearing, where she's holidaying as well looking to her for hair and beauty advice. 
     
    WITH ALL THAT SAID, if you want to support the podcast which I’m sure between 1 and 3 of you do, then please sign up to my Patreon here For just over €3 a month I record two audio diaries and various other little bits. Recording an audio diary this year has been particularly brilliant seeing as we've all been trapped in our homes and I've done shag all,but we have a laugh mates. 
     
    If money is an issue - don’t worry about it. Instead you can also show your support for free by clicking five stars in iTunes and leaving a short review, something casual along this line of ‘WOWEE. ESTHER - WHAT A TALENT.’ I don’t want to put words in your mouth but something like that would be more than adequate. Not only that but you can follow me on Insta here too if you feel like it too. Sure why not Marion?
     
    Until next Tuesday my little fruit of the looms!
     
    Peace and love, 
     
    EO'MD.

    Is she a woman who made the Slap Chop famous? YES.
    What is a Slap Chop?
    Well that's where I gotcha hooked! You're going to have to listen to find out. Am I good at this or what?!

    #81 The Nathan Foad Episode

    #81 The Nathan Foad Episode

    Oh hi there!
    Last time I saw yo, living in fear of contracting a debilitating virus was the stuff of nightmares and now look at us! Good times guys, amirrrrriiight?
    After a long pandemic induced break, I am so glad to start this new series with the brilliant talent that is Nathan Foad.
    Nathan is a writer, comedian, performer, expert present wrapper and definitely not a hockey player. Nathan’s star is rising which of course, I am 80% happy for, 20% full of loathing for.
    Before the first lockdown Nathan executive produced a Channel 4 taster pilot for his original sitcom ‘Newark, Newark’ named after his home town Newark on Trent. But the success and achievement does not stop there which leaves me fuming. He has written for the BBC3/RTE production The Young Offenders, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice for Channel 4 as well as being under commission from BBC Comedy and Comedy Central. If you haven’t see his brilliant online series Comedians in Quarantine, just click here baybuh. And if you’re looking for even more hilarity from Nathan, read his essays on his website and make sure you you follow him on Twitter and Instagram. Reader, je love him - he is a joy. 
    NOW WITH ALL THAT SAID, if you want to support the podcast which I’m sure between 1 and 3 of you do, then please sign up to my Patreon here For just over €3 a month I record two audio diaries and various other little bits.

    Until next Tuesday my little fruit of the looms!

    #84 The Lisa and Vanessa Creaven Episode

    #84 The Lisa and Vanessa Creaven Episode

    What’s the tooth, I mean truth behind dentist sisters Lisa and Vanessa Creavens huge success? Over the past (almost) five years, they have built their brand from zero to heroes of oral healthcare. Not only have the made a huge dent in the Irish market but their brand is now also stocked in a teeny tiny American store called TARGET! They are top of their game and I for one, of course, am 80% happy for them. You want the tooth? You can’t handle the tooth etc. But hopefully you can handle my chat with Lisa and Vanessa.

    #85 The Zoe Quinn Episode

    #85 The Zoe Quinn Episode

    During the first lockdown my guest this week, Zoe Quinn kept me thoroughly entertained. I’d look forward to her daily One Outfit One Exercise Instagram account and I’d watch her run all over Howth exercising as I’d tuck into another Twirl. I’d muse to myself, as Amy Poehler once said ,‘Good for you, not for me.’ In this episode Zoe talked to me about her Z Talk series, her former life in fashion and lessons she’s taken from this unique time in history we’re all living through.
     
    Now, here comes the science part. The 80% is always free to listen to but not free to make. If you would like to support making it you could sign up to my Patreon here For €3 a month I record two audio diaries and various other little bits that are designed to make you LOL. If money is an issue - don’t worry about it. Instead you can also show your support for free by clicking five stars in iTunes and leaving a short review, something casual along this line of ‘WOWEE.

    Have a great Christmas break and let’s see what 2021 has in store for us all.

Dee Chaps ,

Love this podcast

Just came across this podcast, really funny, well worth a listen.

Listening to get inside the book

I'm dialed into EMO'D's 80% because I'm learning some clever things that I hope will surface again in her book. And I know there's a tribe of like-minded people who enjoy hearing how other creatives think--that's what the 80% Podcast does for me.

10/10, so good

So funny, I adore esther!
