Just in case you didn’t yet know, the series starts on Newstalk 106-108 fm on Christmas Day at 1.30pm when I’ll be discussing Irish Kobe beef with Kevin Thornton as well as talking to Jacque Barry from Jacques Restaurant and Fingal Ferguson of the Gubbeen Smokehouse about Gubbeen pork.

If you don’t think that you’ll be near a radio at that stage in proceedings, you can also subscribe to podcasts from the Newstalk website (scroll down to the Documentaries on Newstalk section). Hope you get to tune in!

    Just checked the Newstalk site – these podcasts don’t seem to be available yet – Bummer -I was looking forward to listening to this – can’t tune in at the broadcast time.

    I’ve been checking the site too and there’s no change – will see if things improve after everyone gets back to normal service tomorrow! Meanwhile, the show is going to be broadcast from Sunday 4 to Sunday 25 January at 9.30pm. Or you can catch it on Saturday mornings at 7.30am. Hope you can tune in!
