The Old Man Talks to Tomás O'Sé

We all know that Tomás O'Sé has five All-Irelands and comes from the most famous gaelic football family on the planet. But is he any good at putting up a trampoline? In this episode, Tomás talks about controlling your temper when dealing with the kids, throwing a sickie from school to watch the launch of Network 2 and running Uncle Paidí's pub when he was 13. He talks about Kerry a fair bit as well. (And who could blame him?)

The Old Man Talks to Bill Linnane

I'm going to call this episode the Boozy Dad Special. Bill Linnane is Dad of 4, journalist and a top notch booze blogger athttps://tripledistilled.blog. We talked about taking drink and drugs because you're unhappy, adoption, writing and wondering what would happen if you threw the kids' Playstation into the fire. Don't be fooled by his mad gloomy photograph, Bill is a complete hoot.

The Old Man Talks to Tomás O'Leary

What do you ask a man with 2 Heineken Cup medals, a Grand Slam and a minor All-Ireland hurling for Cork? I mainly asked Tomás about life with his son Jamie. We talked Peppa Pig, Christmas with the in-laws, going back to hurling after 15 years playing rugby, and how he managed to get fat in the south of France. BTW the way, if you're one of those people who wonders whether Peter O'Mahony is any good at cooking BBQ, then this is the episode for you.

The Old Man Talks to Joe O'Shea

This week's Old Man is Cork broadcaster and writer, Joe O'Shea. We talked ketchup, the perfect bedtime routine for a 20 month old, we even got nostalgic about the good old days when men weren't expected to change nappies. WARNING: We start singing the nighttime from Cbeebies (The Time has Come, To Say Goodnight), but we managed to stop before it got too embarrassing.

The Old Man Talks to Billy Keane

A belter of an episode with one of my favourite writers, publican, father of four and professional Kerry man Billy Keane. We talk the Pope saying mad things, the magic of a few pints, blow-up dolls, teaching your kids empathy and trying to get your godson (Johnny Sexton) to play for Munster.

The Old Man Talks to Ray Foley

Broadcasting's Ray Foley sat down with me in Red FM to talk aboutcursing at children, working in Cork and living in Dublin, seeing his kids at the weekends, why he doesn't Skype or FaceTime them during the week, blackout blinds, talking to your partner on holidays and why he drinks Skinny Bitches. I nearly wet myself more than once, he's a little bit funny.

The Old Man talks to Jamie Grayson (The Baby Guy NYC)

And now for something a little bit different. Jamie Grayson doesn't have any kids, but he does have over 300,000 views for every Facebook video he posts about Baby Gear. He's better known on social media as The Baby Guy NYC, the go-to guy for baby stuff and parenting issues in the US. I caught up with him in The Republic of Work in Cork to talk baby-wipe warmers, borrowing others people's kids and rich people who want a separate Bugaboo for their house in the Hamptons. (It's such a drag packing one into your car.)

The Old Man Talks to Keith Barry

It's the one with Keith Barry and it's a proper cracker. We talk his new show Deception, risking your life for your craft, making family time when you work 18 hour days, Morgan Freeman, playing Shithead with your kids and finally, Keith guesses the password I use on all my online accounts. If you are planning to hack into my bank account, please leave a few quid on the way out. Before I go, a quick thanks to Frank and DC in the Republic of Work for the loan of the room. And don't forget to check out Deception dates on keithbarry.com, because Keith live is unmissable.

The Old Man talks to Jonathan Healy

You might know Jonathan from Newstalk, Red FM or RTE Today. I know him better after our chat on the Old Man, when we talked hangovers, baking through stress, cursing at your daughter in Alicante so she doesn't get sick all over a hire car and his hang-ups about a toilet brush.
