This American Life meets Ireland

Less whimsy but more a vivid and lush snapshot of an Irish event or situation. It feels like being transported to that time. It’s special, give it a go.

Beautifully told stories by ordinary yet extraordinary people

I fell in love with all things Irish when I traveled alone many years ago. Since then I have been seeking out Irish story telling forever. This is the best podcast I found so far. When I listen to their stories, I feel like I am right there in the room with the narrator.

Best I've heard

I stumbled across this podcast and am grateful I did. Amazing in everyway. The sound could be a little clearer in some and the volume can be quiet low but that aside it's a wonderful way to relax and open my mind.
