This week the lads are joined by comedian Justine Stafford, and the conversation veers from the silly to the serious. We hear about attending Irish celebrity parties, return to the Stall It superhero universe (with a very strange insight from Justine into various smells) and take a deep dive into the strange world of the Irish oral examination system.
Justine also gives us a powerful insight into her battle over many years with eating disorders, and the lads discuss their own experiences with mental health issues.

Spite once again takes the wheel of Joe’s life, as the desire for petty revenge leads him to lay the foundations for a potentially life changing business venture. But this time, could he be on to a million dollar idea? Or could Darren’s plan for the invention of kebab burgers beat him to the pot of riches? There’s some shocking revelations about 00s cult classic Pimp My Ride, which inspires the lads to design their dream vehicles – with mobile pet grooming, fish tanks and coffee machines at the forefront of the wish list. Darren reveals how Akon fandom remains dominant in his household, which leads to Joe undertaking a mission to get Darren close to his idol, and there are multiple incidences of false advertising of Hollywood superstars appearing at our upcoming live show at Vicar Street.

Is 35 too old to come to the Stall It live show in April? The answer is no, although Darren and Joe may not be the most reassuring comparing the listener who was concerned to other 'ancient' audience members like their mothers and other 'relatives'. They also discuss their favourite conspiracy theories and Joe explains all about the secret Lidl in Antarctica, while Darren wonders about the harsh realities of being ejected from an airplane.

The lads are joined by fellow comedian Kevin McGahern this week who gives the lads an education on life in the country - He explains why he puts on a stronger culchie accent when speaking to the Garda and the boring reality of life on a farm. Darren even attempts to shed his own Dublin accent but only succeeds in taking off his gilet. There's also talk of some previously unheard tales from the Titanic, and other slightly less significant disasters like Joe's first kiss and Kevin's reinvention of himself in a new school. Kevin also shares a story of an audition gone terribly wrong after he went too method and showed up with a can in hand.

Joe claims that he'd be bored on a trip to the moon and reckons there was more craic during the 1916 Rising. Darren meanwhile has dreams of trading stocks and shares, although it quickly becomes apparent that he's actually just planning a scam. A listener gets in touch to offer Joe a gift, but only after it was refused by the Pawn Stars shop in Las Vegas, instead of graciously accepting it, Joe decides he'll recreate a pawn shop at the live show in April. Darren's wedding day attire also comes into question after he was spotted modelling a gilet at a recent wedding fair. There's also a debate about coddle versus stew that inspires the two lads to share their own top cooking tips which include ketchup on spaghetti. Send in your questions to StallIt@GoLoudNow.com.

This week we are treated to Joe’s definitive guide to New York City, from the Pecking Ducks of Downtown to the essentials for getting into a row in a burger restaurant, and on to his recommendations for curious local delicacies. We have a bizarre tale from New York, of perhaps history's greatest example of someone backing up their pub talk, driven on by a few pints and a stolen plane (or two). There’s a story of a Hitler matchbook, and questions about what other strange memorabilia commemorates history’s monsters. And Darren tells us about his big day out, riding the DART, enduring an odyssey on Wicklow’s buses, and encountering a gang of sea swimmers.
