A great podcast to enjoy

I’ve been listening to Motherfocloir after randomly searching podcasts on the Irish language since I’m trying to learn. It has been extremely entertaining to say the least. Very informative, hilarious, with a mix of personalities and perspectives; it sounds more like friends having an intelligent conversation and a few laughs(maybe a few pints) in a bar then just a podcast. I’ve also learned more history about Ireland, the language, people, and culture than I ever expected. Go raibh maith agat!

Examples please‽

A whole episode on Manx and we only hear a couple of words of it? Same goes for Irish. I want to hear more the language you’re discussing.

Studio's great, live is a mess.

I love the wonderful people on this podcast, guests and regulars, and it gives me a lot to think about, both with the language and culture. The studio shows are great; very well put together. The live shows are kind of a mess. The latest was rough to get through- got really messy and random. When they got back on topic, it was great, but the thread was short.
