The Limerick Lady Podcast

Jun 17, 2020

Lockdown continues apace in many respects, and our hosts are still limited to virtual hang-outs with their special guests - no huggin' or pints! This month, Ann and Emma dropped boat-dwelling DJ and Today Fm presenter Claire Beck a line. A familiar name to many, Claire is a stalwart of Irish radio and tells our hosts about getting her start in pirate radio in Dublin in her teens.

June is Pride Month and talk turns to how Pride has drifted a little from its original meaning but has lost none of its importance. Our hosts and guest discuss the importance of strong allies to all marginalised communities, and chat about language and "cancel culture".
