The Green Rebel podcast.

Emily O’Callaghan and Irina Dzhambazova meet Presidential candidate, Senator Joan Freeman, of Pieta House.

Emily writes

We we ask Joan her about her reasons behind running for President, we pose questions sent in by people on Facebook and Twitter and we take a deep dive into the socio-political issues facing Ireland today along with her potential solutions for them.

Senator Freeman was open and honest in her answers and provided an overview of her hopes for the future of this country.

Free Friday?

Enjoy comedy?

Did you know? Going to see live stand up comedy doesn’t have to mean sitting through the same style of jokes delivered by someone who is shouting while they sweat on you?

There is a place that you can go where you can hear diverse, intellectual and hilarious people entertain you with their fresh, well crafted humour.

It’s called Gold. Comedy Gold. This Friday we are collaborating with RTÉ to bring you some of the best new voices on the scene.

The link for the last few tickets is below. Snap them up and join us in Collins Barracks [Dublin 7] this Friday for Culture Night for a live recording of some great acts from Comedy Gold!

One of our shows is already sold out but there are a few tickets left for the 6.30 pm slot.
