Missed the lads at EP?? No bother as in this episode we hear Talking Bollox live from Electric Picnic. Listen as the lads talk all about being backstage, the artists, the energy and a special guest makes an appearance too.
Charles Self, an RTE set designer, was brutally murdered in his own home on an icy night in January 1982. 40 years later the case remains clouded in mystery. The investigation that followed saw 1500 gay men interviewed around Dublin, with many feeling the gardai used the investigation as cover to carry out a witch hunt against the gay community, at a time when homosexual acts were outlawed in Ireland. The murder happened in a very different Ireland to today's society - gay people were hunted by vicious gangs and got little protection from the police or courts, who more than once allowed killers to walk free because their victims were gay. We're joined by Frank Greaney, who has investigated the Charles Self case in his new podcast 'Inside the Crime', and Bill Foley, a gay rights activist who tells us about the hate and danger the LGBT community faced in the Ireland of the 1980s.

It's our 100th episode so we're having a bit of party. Dublin rappers Versatile - Casper Walsh and Eskimo Supreme - join us for their first ever in-depth interview. They tell their story for the first time, from breaking new ground in Irish music with the incredible heights of their 3 Arena show, to dark days when they faced calls for their cancellation amid allegations of racism and misogyny. And of course we couldn't have our 100th episode without the legend that is Willa White. He drops in and adds to the chaos the way only he can.
