Has Micheál Martin REALLY got his own podcast?
Yes, he launched it this week!
Is it boring?
I dunno – probably – but please, be nice!
Will it be the only podcast launched by an Irish politician this year? Please say yes!
(They pause to discuss the Republic of Ireland women’s team’s respectable World Cup experience)
So, the Dubs were…
Hold it! Can you keep a secret?
No, but go on!
ON A MING AND A PRAYER…
I have a friend – I can’t reveal my source – who claims some of our local politicians may be about to launch their own podcasts as well. My friend may be having me on, I dunno, he keeps texting me…
And that’s Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan’s podcast? ON A MING AND A PRAYER?
Well, allegedly, I mean, it may only be a rumour…
Senator Aisling Dolan?
IF THE CAP FITZ…
I see where this is going…Michael Fitzmaurice?
YES! And… ON A CLAIRE DAY…Deputy Kerrane.
DEBATING WITH DENIS: Naughten on the key issues of the day.
And THE EUGENE EDGE: MURPHY’S MUSINGS.
Is that all of them?
No, there are more!
(Editor: I’m going to Ballaghaderreen’s new festival next week, I will meet Joe Brolly – who is on stage there one night – and I will recruit him to replace these boyos, for once and for all! I’ve had enough!)
Are there any MORE political podcasts?
YES! According to my source! Do you want a leak or two?
Look, can we not just talk about the Dubs, and celebrate them?
Sure! The Dubs were great!
But… we’re on the subject of political podcasts…I have more details to reveal!
NO! Please! NO!
YES! He’s calling it A WELCOME MATT – allegedly.
Oh dear…not BATTY MATTIE?
DANNY HEALY-RAE too.
Of course. Go on…
Apparently he’s simply calling his podcast DAN THE MAN.
I suppose Michael Healy-Rae has one planned too…
Well, funny you say that, he had, but now he’s embroiled in legal action…
…with Deputy Michael Fitzmaurice. Well, allegedly. According to my source.
Yeah, some dispute over the title of the podcast, apparently. An argument over copyright. Michael Healy-Rae claims he thought of ‘IF THE CAP FITS’ first!
