Disappointed on so many levels that #cuttingedgerte is not coming back in #rtenewseason. I know how hard Brendan and everyone @MindtheGapFilms worked to keep it relevant and interesting. People STILL come up to me in the street to say how much they enjoy it. That’s rare.
Anne-Marie Tomchak (among a panel that included Fr Brian D’Arcy, and journalist Larissa Nolan) gives her thoughts on a recent music review describing Tracey Thorn as ‘a wife and mother‘ rather than ‘talking about her in the context of her music’ and she talks about taking her husband’s name…
Brendan O’Connor’s new series, Cutting Edge, will begin.
Alan, of Mind the Gap films, writes:
Each week, Brendan O’Connor will be joined by three regular panelists to cut into the week’s news from Ireland and around the world, in the style of a darkly comedic post mortem.
This g show will feature the big news stories, alongside the colourful nuggets that may have escaped the public’s attention.
As with all the best discussions there will be some good laughs and some fierce disagreements as the winners and losers of the week come under the penetrating gaze of the panel. This show is serious fun.
As for tickets, Alan adds:
We’re offering people the chance to witness the discussions first hand. For a chance to be part of the live audience and see the action at its closest, send us an email at email@example.com. Tickets are free. Audience members must be 18 or over.
