Hello from Las Vegas! This week, Paddy and Chad talk about how Blaggards got booked in Las Vegas by the legendary Derek Warfield, the band's longtime relationship with Celtic FC supporters, their unique arrangement of Fields of Athenry, the perils of people-pleasing in the arts, and a tip of the hat to the remarkable bravery of stand-up comedians.
