Venial, Original and Mortal Sins fly about like its no big deal as Greg Dunne from Priory Brewing comes into the studio and gives Chad and Adam the what for, including how Nick Cave and the death of a dog (covered on Pet Cemetery) led him to the brewery.
Emma is the guest on Shower Talk, our love for Andrea is in Jeopardy for 90 seconds, a bird of prey attacks another dog in the Scary News and Adam's Publisher is hallucinating. fArt School explores PSYCHO BUILDINGS, people keep making gigantic balls of crap and waste in S/E Ireland and Devyn posthumously checks in one last time with an Eco Tip.
Keeping the faith: its the Halloween Show once again!! Gala Grey comes to you LIVE and Grim Squeaker comes to you kind of alive from the abandoned bar. Samhain rituals will be performed. The Bul Bey graciously co-hosts this moribund romp-a-round. A haunted tea pot takes center stage and Grim talks about what its like to do push-ups in a pile of thumb tacks. Anything can happen on Halloween.
Devyn does 'Eco-Tips' posthumously.
The Publisher continues to work with the Ghost Writer. Andrea drives cross-country, but mostly snacks. Bedlam ensues in the Scary News. No 5G in The Garden of Ireland without more research. Adam goes for a super serious walk with some really super, super insight.
Special thanks to UltimateRadio.co.uk for streaming the show live on the station! Happy Halloween!
Who is Birdy? In a tern of fantastic luck, we get Niall Hatch of BirdWatch Ireland (who has featured extensively on many major outlet Irish radio outlets) to swoop in and slum it at the abandoned bar and its a heck of a lark. From local garden birds tips all the way to tales of twitching on distant shores leading to taking the first-ever photographs of a humming bird species: if you like birds at all (and even if you dont yet) this interview is one to check out.
This show was streamed live on Sept 12th, 2019 and features the debut of a new segment: Devyn's Eco Tips. To the shock and dismay of all who knew her, Devyn passed away suddenly on Sept 17th, 2019. Devyn was Adam's oldest friend in Ireland. As of this posting on 21st Sept, the grief from the loss is still being processed and those who were close to her are living in a haze. We recorded three segments with Devyn and, as was planned, will play the remaining two in future shows. A brief obituary can be found at: https://tinyurl.com/devynos

Fun Bobby and Gibbo DROP IN to the abandoned bar as they prepare for Troll Bowl IV: Ireland's premier indie skate event. Topics range from skate parks and the lack thereof, urban public space and the skate scene in Ireland as a whole. A genuinely engrossing chat you need to check out, no joke.
We go for a walk with the brass from Laguenitas Brewing, get buff so we can kick someones ass with Andrea Laurion, learn about Competitive Introspection Magazine from Adam's Publisher, deal with some low-lifes who slash up a GAA pitch for no dang good reason and learn about some cat who removes all of his finery at the gym because their slogan is 'A Judgement Free Zone'.
