Ep 22. Saving the River Poddle – Róisín McAleer

The River Poddle runs through Dublin City, sometimes underground, so not a lot of people know of its importance. Róisín McAleer, a teacher and member of Crumlin Community Clean Up group, tells us about the importance of the river and how it's being threatened right now.

Ep 20. Sustainable Resolutions

Happy New Year guys. I know it doesn't feel like it for a lot of people, especially due to the ongoing fires in Australia. Personally, I find it so hard to not be overwhelmed when such disasters happen but the only thing I can do that alleviates this dread in me is knowing there is still life right now therefore there is still hope and I must do what I can.

In this (delightfully short) episode I suggest 6 resolutions you can take your pick of for 2020, or adopt them whenever you like if that's your jam! I also give a quick summary and shout out to all the guests I've had in 2019 and of course to you guys, the listeners. Thank you all so much.

I'll be back in 2020 at some point with more inspiring and educational interviews.
