Two of Ireland’s best podcasts team up for what promises to be a great night. DJ Walsh and Eoin Tabb of Snugcast along with Fin Dwyer of the Irish History Podcast will be looking Ireland’s relationship with booze over the last few centuries.
This live podcast will be taking a humurous look at the history of boozing in Ireland. The three podcasters will be looking at whether our relationship to alcohol was always unhealthy? Did people really only drink alcohol in the Middle Ages because water was so bad? Why did the church try and curb drinking before the Famine? This will lead to the holy grail of alcohol related quesions – why we cannot have just ‘the one’? Snugcast will also navigate the good, bad and indifferent beers you can get and maybe even how to it can enjoy it rather than guzzled down. Tickets are free and available HERE.
