It’s that time of the week to sit down, grab a cuppa and stick on the newest episode of the Limerick Voice Podcast: What’s the Story with Bob Geldof? – out now!
Join Lauren, Matthew, and special guest, multimedia reporter Thomas Lawrence, as we talk about the latest in national and local news.
On this week’s podcast, we talked about Citizens of Boomtown: The Story of the Boomtown Rats coming to the University of Limerick’s Concert Hall and Lauren exposed her fan behaviour of a certain UL lecturer.
As podcasts around this time of year go, we got a bit festive and talked about New Year celebrations!
In more serious news, we also talked about media coverage surrounding the suspected murder-suicide in Co. Clare, and its similarities to other femicide news coverage in Ireland, including the recent Ashling Murphy murder trial.
Our guest Thomas Lawrence talked us through the Mid West Hospital Campaign and their call to end overcrowding in University Hospital Limerick.
Last but not least, Matthew took us through the most recent sporting updates in Munster- including the GAA All Star Awards, Na Piarsaigh in the Munster SHC Semi-Final, and Munsters clash with the Stormers.
We hope you enjoy the listen!
