Meet Your Maker.

The award-winning podcast featuring people who make things hosted by Liam Geraghty.

Liam writes:

This week on Meet Your Maker we sit down to talk to disgruntled North Dublin anti-folk pop merchant Big Monster Love aka Cormac McCanney (top).

An enthusiastic collector of old photographs Cormac has also written a book called True Dublin where he uses photographs, postcards, and other rare documents to give a glimpse into life in Dublin at the end of the 19th century.  Above he discusses the stories behind his music and why he decided to return to gigging.
