There was a dark time in Irish history when having a drink in a pub with some friends required the additional purchase of a “substantial meal.”
Countless nights of talking absolute nonsense were lost.
To combat this, three friends decided to crank up their Windows XP-powered Dell computers and get drunk together online from the squalor of their own homes.
Join two of Ireland’s funniest comedians, Justine Stafford and Martin Angolo, along with Ireland’s least-known actor Dermot Ward, as they enjoy a few drinks while tackling life’s big questions.

Briefcase of Sorrow
On another (but hopefully final!) remotely-recorded episode, Justine, Martin, and Dermot dish out some more helpful advice to listeners; suggest the best cures for the January Blues; and inadvertently concoct a smash-hit country song
Started from the Bottom, Now We’re Back
This week on a remotely-recorded episode, Dermot is depressed, Justine reveals her wrestling crushes, and Martin has some exciting news about everyone's favourite member of Simon & Garfunkel who isn't named Paul
On the first episode of 2022, Dermot wants to make some personal changes, Martin has his first wedding experience, and Justine absolutely loses her mind. It's gonna be a long year.
There's Nothing Wrong with Dogging
This week on the show, Justine, Martin, and Dermot are swapping dating tips, nuts are placed on a table, and - in a brand new segment - the gang attempt to help YOU with your problems. You're welcome.
A Very Substantial Christmas
On the first ever Christmas edition of The Substantial Meal, Justine updates us on her ear canal drama, Dermot makes hot whiskeys, and Martin whips out his cucumber. God bless us, every one!
Stringfellow’s Last Words
This week, Martin, Justine, and Dermot decide to throw an elaborate dinner party, featuring Subway sandwiches, god-awful celebrity impressions, and even worse advice about ear canal blockages.
Friends having a laugh
Love these guys/gal just talking and having a great time.
Fun for The Try Channel fans especially!
Dermot, Justine, and Martin work well together. Some of the stuff they discuss will occasionally fly over my head a little bit just because I’m an American, but they do a good job dumbing it down for somebody like me. The line Justine drops about “inflatable tombstones” slayed me! Keep up the good work everybody! 😀
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
