Arts – Ireland – Recommended podcasts

  • From a Westboro Baptist Church defector and an ex-Hasidic Jew to the world's first ever blogger and teenage class president who confessed to being a pedophile, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Wednesday.


    It's been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Andrew has been making documentaries about bizarre, unusual and remarkable people around the world for a decade. He's done battle with an exorcist, taken on anti-abortionists and hunted for UFOs, all while living in six different countries and learning to speak five languages.


    In this podcast, he aims to get to the humanity of people living on the fringes, and introduce these people with diverse ways of looking at the world to the listener. It's not all deep and sad - he aims to get humour and fun out of these people, so the audience can also actually...be entertained! Follow him on twitter here @andrewgold_ok and check out his documentaries on his YouTube channel.


    Oh, and please do leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

A beautiful truth.

In 1982 RTÉ Radio celebrated the centenary of Joyce's birth with a dramatised full production of 'Ulysses'; this broadcast is now considered one of the definitive adaptations of the book. See RTE.ie/ulysses for more.

  • David Baddiel and his mate Tim Hincks talk all things David Bowie. They spin out from there to anything and everything that’s funny, quizzical, and vaguely related to Bowie, or music, or their own mid-life crises. It’s a bit niche: Absolute Beginners won’t get it. You see? The ones who got that reference are smiling smugly. And others are thinking: I shan’t listen to that then.
