Reviewers Welcome ,

Lots of Fun

Sort of a Celtic version of our American "a Prairie Home Companion". Well done with lots of skits and songs. 1001 thanks and keep up the good work!

Bob6.022E23 ,

Semi-recommended

I skip through the useless chatter to get to the useless music.
Songs praising alcoholism or modeling mysogyny not recommended for those whose brains have not fully matured (circa age 27).

claxxon ,

this podcast is awful!

I have listened to this podcasts for a long time, and it just keeps getting worse. the only good thing about this podcast is the music. The hosts have always sounded like they wish they were someplace else. I wish they would try to make more of a show of it. Hearing thick southern accents lacadasically tell me about the next ren thing kills it for me. Or the past hosts badly trying on renniassance accents while speaking in what can only be described as a drug induced cadence was, and still is AWFUL!
