A heart-warming, funny and inspirational podcast that celebrates gay culture, inspirations and icons.
In this weekly series, the hosting duo are joined by a range of entertaining and insightful guests to hear unique, personal and funny reflections on life as an LGBTQIIA+ person and how rights and freedoms (or the lack of them) have shaped and shifted their lives.
Each delightful episode features; laugh out loud observations, personal and affecting “coming-out” stories and shameless name dropping to beat the band. That’s all to be expected when you pair Brian and Katherine and let them loose on a host of fantastic guests from Ireland and… Around The World.
Like Forest Gump's box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get in an Around The World in 80 Gays bonus episode. In this minisode, Katherine shares how she's related to Che Guevara Lynch, Brian talks about his love of San Francisco and dealing with exploding toilets. What can we say - showbiz ain't all glamour. P.S In the main episode this week we chatted with writer and comedian Martin Beanz Warde so go back and listen if you haven't already - it's a good one!

Here we are again - the worlds number 1 podcast hosted by a woman from Leitrim and a man from the Falls Road. This week, we have managed to force, I mean, ask politely, another great friend of ours to share the stories of their gay lives with us. Martin Beanz Warde is a writer and comedian with a degree in sociology and politics from NUI Galway. He has written several publications including The Irish Times and is a frequent contributor to Irish TV and radio and now, Around The World in 80 Gays. Welcome, Martin Beanz Warde!

In this main episode this week we had the incredible talent that is writer and actor, Mark O’Halloran. In this bonus episode, both Katherine and Brian chatted again about how much they love one of Mark’s creations - Adam and Paul, and how they love rewatching it. And with that in mind, they then shared what other films they return to.

As an actor, Mark O’Halloran has worked with all the major theatre companies in Ireland. On the big and small screen, he has appeared in numerous films, most notably as one of the eponymous heroes in Adam & Paul for which he also wrote the screenplay. But his talents don’t stop there. Mark has also won multiple awards, has dozens of writing credits under his belt and now, to gild his lily even further, he is appearing on Around the World in 80 Gays. We were delighted to have him.

Our very special guest in the main episode this week was Colm O’Gorman. The subject matter was quite heavy so we thought we’d keep it light for the bonus this week. Inspired by Colm’s cooking skills and passion for food, Katherine and Brian shared their favourite meal and Brian asks if Katherine has ever tried vag-atarianism?
