Seasonal Debates, And The History Of St. Brigid (According To Ray)1 February - 48 mins
The early mornings continued today as we filled in for Ian again on the breakfast show!
It's the 1st of February and that means it's St. Brigid's day. But it seems a lot of people are unfamiliar with the stories of Brigid, so Ray has taken it upon himself to educate the people of Ireland in his own words...
And do you consider today the beginning of Spring? There are a lot of different opinions on this topic. Have we divided the nation once again?
It's all in today's pod!
Daylight Savings, And Guess Who's Back?

A Eurovision Legend, And Our First Robot Colleague
On today's show, An all-staff email was sent around TodayFM this morning announcing a brand new 'audio AI' named Rayo. Naturally, Ray was paranoid that he could soon lose his job to a robot, so he has concluded that if he can sound more like a robot on air, he might be ok! The results were questionable... And we were joined on the show by Eurovision legend Linda Martin! She chatted to us about the opening of her new sanctuary for stray dogs, The Dublin Dog Hub.
