Mabinóg Studios has announced the launch of a new podcast series ‘Tommy & Hector Podcast with Laurita Blewitt’. Listeners are invited to join Tommy Tiernan, his school pal Hector O’Heochagain and Mayo woman Laurita Blewitt as they sit around the table in a shed at the bottom of a garden in the West of Ireland and just chat. The podcast is hosted, distributed and monetised by Acast, the world’s leading podcast company.
Hector O’Heochagain said “The day we record the podcast I get that giddy excited feeling in my mind and body. We all have certain friends who are just great fun and craic to be around , this podcast is “that friend” in a nutshell …when we get to the garden shed I know the chat will be good, I know I’m going to laugh, I know that I’m going to sit and listen to all sorts of stories, where and how we get around to these stories no one knows but what I hope is that they will whisk the listener away for a while as they tune in … whether in the car the office, the kitchen, or on headphones around the local GAA pitch.”
