Bonus: Another Tap in Paradise
27:10The pressure of the public tap is at the forefront of Terence’s mind, and he’s struggling to get over some tap-related PTSD from a couple of very public shamings. Calvin’s in full understanding of how Pirates of The Caribbean has Texas Vibes, but less understanding of people thinking it’s a pirate film.And then there’s some aliens in recovery, and an unexpected but absolutely full-blooded endorsement of Phil Collins as the GOAT.
Episode 157 w/ Stall It
1:59:06It’s a crossover episode – Stall It's own Darren Conway and Joe McGucken came in to visit and amid the chaos there were also discussions of celebrity sightings, zombie attacks in Dublin, and robbed bikes. Joe's role in Barry Keoghan's rise to fame is revealed, and it all comes full circle when the lads reveal the part Barry had to play in their own success.The lads all join forces to try to convince Terence to watch more films, and they're surprised to hear he made a trip to the cinema to watch Saltburn, even if he only lasted as long as it took him to eat his nachos.
Bonus: Hatch Me if You Can
25:27What amount of cash makes a year of leftovers acceptable as your only food?Terry worries about his tiny (and possibly shrinking) ears, while Calvin remembers the cut throat world of street football fondly, and in particular the ruthless consequences of being caught hatching.Meanwhile, we come to the conclusion that life, for Terence Power, is just one big Wet Paint sign, waiting to be smudged.Terence argues that the Liffey is on the Northside, and he’s lost yet another tooth.And there’s pushback on the public’s pity for Terence, with Calvin baffled about how well his co-host has manged to shape public perceptions.

She came into us to share the heartbreaking story of that loss, and to tell us about Nicole and the torture she endured.

Episode 155 w/ Richie Sadlier
2:09:38Former footballer turned pundit and psychotherapist Richie Sadlier joined us this week for a chat about his beginnings in football, his career at Millwall and how his early retirement turned his life upside down. Unsure of the way forward in a world without football, Richie turned to drugs and alcohol. He told us about his journey to sobriety and how different the path to recovery looks for us all.

He told us about that as well as his turbulent journey to becoming a father.
