It’s shaping up to be the perfect podcast binge.
Blindboy will return to Leeside with the popular Blindboy Podcast Live at Cork Opera House as part of Cork’s first Podcast Festival, joining the team behind true crime hit West Cork in an exciting line-up.
Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy has also handpicked and curated a number of Irish podcasts for this year’s festival, taking place in various venues across the city, including pubs, book shops and other nooks and crannies, from Friday, October 11th to Sunday, October 13th, 2019.
The first of these is Taranoia with comedian, writer, and actor Tara Flynn. Taranoia: Live!, The Tara Flynn Podcast will treat fans to an hour of ‘craic, chat, and lessons learned’ at The Crawford Art Gallery Theatre.
Adding to the previously announced West Cork Podcast event, with journalist Sam Bungey and documentarian Jennifer Forde at Cork Opera House, and clocking up over 23 million downloads: Unexplained with creator Richard MacLean Smith will take the audience on an atmospheric journey through an extraordinary tale.
Here’s the what you need to know: In the summer of 1971, in the small northeastern village of Hexham in England, two young boys are digging about in their garden when they discover a pair of strange stone heads buried two feet underground.
Unexplained features as a double bill with Petrified – a horror anthology podcast from a darker Ireland, directed by Peter Dunne and produced by him with Liam Geraghty.
A late night radio show host in a remote station receives increasingly disturbing calls from his listeners out there in the dark. The double header takes place (in complete darkness) at the Crawford Art Gallery Theatre on Friday, October 11th.
