Aoife Moore is a journalist covering Irish politics. She was a guest at our last live show and since then we've been hounded by requests to get her on for a full episode.
We talked about everything from how the murder of her uncle on Bloody Sunday inspired Aoife to want to be a journalist, the online abuse she has faced, what it's like covering Irish politics, the protests around refugee centres, the prospects for a united Ireland, and how trauma rooted in The Troubles lives on today.
After a long hiatus we return to the studio for a very special bonus episode. Terence gives an update on what has kept him away for so long and why it's cost him two teeth, so far. Calvin argues he could be a pilot with minimal time spent training, while Terence argues he got the better of Lance Armstrong going up Howth Hill. There’s also some talk of clapping at funerals and on flights, while Terence admits to breaking out in applause in taxis - and gets thrown a Texas question to welcome him back.

A Talking Bollox first this week, as we have an episode with just one of the lads. Illness meant Terence wasn't able to make it to Electric Picnic this year, so Calvin called on Willa White to share the stage with him. It wasn't quite the show we had all hoped for, but Willa brought some stories and jokes that lifted the roof off the place.

Calvin has a new theory about the flocks of Spanish students he's been seeing on the bus this past summer, while Terence is too busy getting recognised by bus and Luas drivers to notice - Although it unclear whether this fame is due to the podcast or his shameless disregard for buying tickets. There's also talk of spur of the moment tattoos, surprising ecosystems and survival on coffee alone.

Ali Ryan joined us to talk to us about her huge success as a showbiz journalist, founding Goss.ie at just 23 and her struggles and determination to keep it afloat in the early years. She also opened up about the sex tape filmed without her consent, the blackmail and rumours around it, and the impact it had on her life.

Terence suffers from a bout of sleep paralysis that sends him down a YouTube rabbit hole and has him worried he might be the latest member of the 27 club. Meanwhile, Calvin is reassessing his music playlists in favour of podcasts and choosing who he would bring back from the dead for a headline act at Electric Picnic. There's also an assertion that Howth Head is a harder cycle than the Tour De France and a promise of a big budget guests in the next year...
