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.
The best insults, tales of spoiled dogs and planning holidays to Antarctica (without your appendix) - it's a meandering episode this week Your questions have Terence and Calvin considering if they'd sacrifice the internet to save the chipper (while questioning what became of Dublin's best chippers), and wondering why some people are producing gourmet meals for dogs. Terry is on Sky Scanner pricing up flights to the South Pole, and Calvin is wondering if there are more people in Antarctica or Leitrim.

Ahead of Friday's live show, comedian Danny O'Brien joined us to offer some of his own disaster stories from the stage and his tips for putting it all into perspective, like reminding yourself no matter how bad it went 'nobody died'. He told us about performing in the Ringsend flats and the community spirit he felt there, even after the event got broken up by the Guards. He also spoke about his work in addiction services and why its so personal to him, as well as sharing some gas tales from the workshops he does in prisons and schools.

Would Terence make a good cult leader? Is Calvin on the juice, or has he just been eating a lot of whole cakes? Terence decides he might skip the cult circuit and go straight for the Aras, if he can turn down his invite to the 27 club and makes it to 35. The lads give their best shot at inventing a conspiracy theory, Calvin is trying to explain Squirrel Stamps to Terence, and there’s a detailed debate about the world’s soundest animal (besides dogs).

MMA fighter Nathan Kelly joined us this week to tell us how fighting helped him both during his childhood in Finglas and later when he went down the wrong path with drugs and alcohol. He explained how he turned things around, even going on to fight at Madison Square Garden with a headline show in the 3arena coming up on the 8th of December.

From panicking in the shower to swearing by LL Cool J’s “iconic” Deep Blue Sea, Terence is thriving in the water this week. A film recommendation from Calvin sees Terence insisting he can be a world beating free-diver, but not without warning of the dangers of panicking in the shower. And some education on record breaking films leads to him swearing off all fish cinema – except one. There’s a debate on movie soundtracks, a reflection on awkward fan interactions, colonies on the moon, and a passionate endorsement of a local delicacy.

PJ Gallagher has been one of Ireland's most famous faces for the past two decades, and has lived his life in the public eye in that time - but he is only now telling the full story. He spoke to us about growing up in a house with alcoholic parents and 5 men with schizophrenia; how he got into comedy; the birth of Naked Camera and the inspiration behind Jake Stevens; how he found out he was adopted and contacted his birth parents, and how his struggle with depression very nearly saw him take his own life, but through the help of friends and the proper car he was able to come out the far side. We also hear about the time a young Calvin and his mates jumped PJ, during a recording of Naked Camera.
