The Limerick Lady Podcast

Dec 16, 2020

It's the most wonderful time of the year; the season of giving; a season full of magic and surprises.

On the December episode of the Limerick Lady Podcast Ann Blake and Emma Langford talk Santa, stardust and space-toilets with budding astronaut Dr. Norah Patten. We're proud to say that the aeronautical engineer from Ballina spent a large chunk of her adult life at the University of Limerick, and is currently on track to be the first Irish person in space... So who better to ask how Santa gets around the whole world in one night?

This episode is family-friendly and features questions posed by kids and grown ups alike - there's no age limit on curiosity!
