An audio love letter to Dublin, about Dublin. Brought to you by Jen and Sarah, pals who used to sit beside each other at work before their bosses intervened and they got separated for lolling non-stop around the clock. Join these two as they make their way through the Old Town, talking to bright sparks and rays of sunshine who serve their creative genius strong, making this city a truly great one.
Episode 3: Radio
Hey! You! Lock up your sun - that’s right, it’s the third installation of We Built This City. You may think it overly lofty, somewhat gregarious or downright arrogant to liken Episode Three to a work of art. Well what you don’t know ... is likely to hurt you. Pull up a plug (the ear variety) to join us and stroll down a sunny sráid as we interview the King of Soundness Joe Donnelly. Known and loved by millions (billions probably), Joe was a driving force behind Phantom FM and TXFM, before both stations lost the Battle of the Bottom Line. As you’ll hear, Joe is the ultimate gent, his passion for music and radio is contagious and THAT VOICE THO.
Episode 2: So Far Sounds
Calm down Doctor Dre. It’s been decided you are in fact actually ready for the next episode. In part II, we fall en amour with the world record breaker for soundness Clare O'Hanlon from SoFar Sounds. She curates stunning live music events for love, and hits a near-fatal level of buzz while doing so.
Join us to hear how So Far Sounds adds to the live music landscape of Dublin, why we high five creativity in this city that’s made up of creative folk that need more high fives and how bustin a harp into a vintage clothes shop is good craic as well.
Episode 1: Sing Along Social
Craic expertise, Cyndi Lauper and - fear not! - a safe space from Harvey Weinstein.
Welcome to We Built This City, the world's first podcast that can boast Tupac Shakur among its ardent listeners, despite this being the first episode ever. Join Jen and Sarah for this momentous launch, in which they talk shite and music with Aoife McElwain from Sing Along Social, whose no-commitment choir provides a unique Fear removal service to anyone fortunate enough to cross her glorious path. Aoife's motto is 'press play and see what happens' which is a good analogy for what's happening right now.
Soothe your weary soul on a Freddy Krueger commute, iron your underwear AND your socks AND your pocket squares to dulcet/raspy tones, jolt yourself awake with the sound of raucous lols while attempting to lull yourself to sleep - we're not fussy.
Whatever happens, remember it's Friday 13th.
A vast improvement on any Monday that ever happened, ever.

It got me through the ironing :)
Looking forward to hearing more guys.
A fascinating insight
As anyone who has made my accquaintance will tell you, I infamously don't listen to podcasts. However, I decided to give this one a chance based on all the social media "buzz" it's been getting. And to my surprise, I enjoyed it immensely! I enjoyed the welcoming bonhomie of the hosts and was fascinated to hear about the idea of a "singalong" (as it was a concept I was unfamiliar with). I must admit it is an intriguing event (although not something I would attend myself, as I don't like crowds or music or crowds of boisterious people singing along to music haha). I will certainly be tuning in to future episodes to find out more about unusual happenings in Dublin!
My two new best audio friends
Can't wait to hear more from these two lovable hosts. Just one episode in and I'm already hooked.
