This week we welcome back one of our most memorable interviewees, Glenn 'Sauso' Murray.
Glenn talks to us about heartbreak, the reason why he hitch hiked around Ireland to raise awareness for mixing alcohol and drugs with your mental health. He touches on ADHD & OCD+ in detail and everything he’s done since he appeared on episode 9 at the start of the year.
This week Sinead Kavanagh joins us in the GoLoud Studios. Sinead is on the cusp of becoming world champion with her upcoming fight against Cris Cyborg. Sinead comes in to talk to us about her road to this career defining moment, what life was like growing up, going from being homeless with her child living in B&B's to now preparing for one of the biggest fights in female MMA history.

This week we talk to one of Ireland's rising stars and D1 native, Joe McGucken. The skinny fella is representing D1 on the comedy scene and as the host of 'Stall It', his own GoLoud podcast, alongside Darren Conway. We had some buzz with Joe but it’s not all laughs, he's gone through some struggles in his life and he told us about the highs and lows along the way and the life lessons he has taken from the tough times. This one left us all with a lot to think about, but we had a great laugh too!

Wayne Hart is a reformed criminal. We talked to him about his life of crime, he reflects on how the sexual abuse he suffered as a child led to him turning from the victim to the monster, and the pain he caused people during those years. Wayne has spent 17 years in prison but is now dedicating his life to preventing people following in his footsteps. We had Wayne on as part of the @get_themessage_out campaign. This campaign aims to help young people avoid going down the wrong road in life. This is a powerful one and an inspirational story, and a lesson that anybody can turn their life around!
