This week Barry & Dermie pothole Tipperary's finest/Parisian adopted son - Mr Donnacha Ryan. We join Donnacha as he relaxes at home with the backdrop of the Paris evening sun burning in his window. We regail old tales of fitness sessions with bags full of shpuds, learning how to drive a scooter around Paris and earning your stripes in life under the watchful eye of some of the games greats.
Trimby starts with a quick update on Ginger the non Irish qualified cat. Barry and Trimby go on to discuss blind, coughing and incompetent refs; alcoholic mermaids and holographic rugby pundits. From a rugby perspective, both hosts contract Stockholm syndrome and feel sorry for our captors and dementors, Leinster. Today’s episode has it all.
This week on the weekly pothole Trimby potholes the ever charismatic and charming Trevor Brennan. We join Trev as he’s sitting in the corner of his beautiful bar in the heart of Toulouse. The lads chat about fatherhood, friendship and frolicking around Limerick with Peter Clohessey - on the back of a quad while looking for heifers. We also get a guest appearance from Justin Harrison as himself and Trev compare stories as to who bate the head off who in that infamous game in Toulouse in 2007.
On this weeks show we dissect the character of a rugby player based on 80’s pop culture while Cozzie drops in from London Wasps to give us the lowdown on how Leinster can beat Sarries and how Ulster could overcome Toulouse. It’s a musical show from start to finish with jingles galore as Barry tells a tale of the origin of Maniac 2000 while Trimby and Dermy start a drum circle. Speaking of Maniacs, we have our first edition of Ranty Penguin featuring a very disgruntled Irish man on a rooftop in New York City who has a particular issue with Josh Van Der Fliers Red Scrum Cap.
On this weeks boner episode Barry sits down with Munster, Ireland and Lions legend David Wallace to talk Romantic Munster, having a fast mammy, getting their palms read in New York and getting kicked out of Electric Picnic.....kind of.
