31 July - 2 mins
Podcast Series The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show

There was a story earlier this week speculating about what shows may or may not be coming back on RTÉ this autumn.

Even if shows do come back it's unlikely that there will be live studio audiences (say goodbye to 'There's one for everyone in the audience"!)

Hozier Says He 'Cringed Hard' About Handsome Squidward Instagram Mistake

Hozier Says He 'Cringed Hard' About Handsome Squidward Instagram Mistake

Not so long ago, global superstar and national treasure Hozier did something a *little* bit mortifying. But, it's something all of us can relate to. He was messing around with the filters on Instagram (guilty!) and instead of sending a video to his private group with the lads, he accidentally uploaded it to his story. By the time he realised what he'd done, the clip had been seen by hundreds of thousands of people around the world and it was too late to delete it. However, being the legend that he is, he just owned it and rode the wave of mortification. Listen to the full chat here: [audio mp3="https://media.radiocms.net/uploads/2020/09/16113047/Ian-and-Hozier-16th-September-2020.mp3"][/audio] Hozier joined Ian Dempsey on the show via Zoom to tell him the whole cringe inducing story as well as promoting the Hospice Coffee Morning, which is celebrating it's 28th year.
