Tenx9 roams the globe with three stories featuring adventures overseas: Ruth Agnew tells Belfast’s Black Box about her Achilles heel; Sam Morris tells tenx9 Manchester of an unfortunate tattoo & a promise unkept; Barbara Binns tells tenx9 Adelaide about an extraordinary act of kindness from a stranger. Paul is your host.
Here are three stories, two told in the Black Box in Belfast - one of them via Rome - and one from tenx9 Manchester: Malachi O’Doherty blames himself for getting beaten up by soldiers, Kelly Condron journeys towards motherhood via Hollyoaks, Jim Livingstone bluffs Pope Paul VI - may God forgive him. Paul is your host.
The theme was Guilt - here are three stories from our April 24th event at Belfast’s Black Box: Iain McLean has a harrowing tale of violence & a merited F-bomb; Karen Hetherington shares a story about her dad that haunts her; Richard O’Leary encapsulates the issue of partition in Ireland with a brand of crisp & an intransigent Ulster man. Also, Pádraig references a tragedy that informed the evening. Paul is your host.
An Easter treat - four stories and a mini-tale from Pádraig. Annette McRay from Nashville gives us our podcast title with a love story spanning six decades; Vladimir Lorenzo in Adelaide demonstrates the power of a hug; Jane Searle in Rostrevor on a mother’s love; Christy Lynch & the power of awkward silences. Paul is your host.
Here’s a fine mix of stories for you: one from Belfast when the theme was Welcome; one from 2017 when the theme was Changing and one from our friends in Australia. Paul Sloan was the man being asked the question in the title; Eliza MacCafferty remembers how welcome and loved she felt around her grandad; Dean Lambert reminds us of the kindness of strangers while Paul lifts the lid on the cruelty of showbiz life.
Three stories for this podcast - two recorded in the Black Box in Belfast and one in Adelaide: Karen Hetherington feels less than welcome in NYC; Laurie Figeon feels awkward negotiating the petrol pump; Paul Hutchinson feels…well, he feels himself. Dani has some sage advice. Padraig & Paul are your hosts.
Three stories - two from our March 27th evening at the Black Box when the theme was Welcome: Jim Livingstone makes an eejit of himself in front of the Great & Good in London; first-timer Corinne Logan brings a touch of horror to the podium; out of the archive Cath Dallat tells us about Ma Dallat while Pádraig has a mini-story about a NYC honeymoon wrecker. Paul is your host.
Four stories in our new-style podcast: Euan Black gets awkward with an 80s superstar in NYC; Tové Kane flirts with Danger; Malachí O’Doherty is underwhelmed by Sputnik in one from the archives; “Claire” loses love in a tale of Mariah, Scooch & Crocs. Dani & Mel in Adelaide make an appearance. Paul is your host.
Three stories, three wonderful accents & all with a hint of danger: first timer Jim Livingstone who “broke his arse”; Richard O’Leary who was under threat from all sides in Cold War USSR; John Sloop from tenx9 Nashville who, let’s just say, felt the pain more than his son. Paul is your host.
We decided that to better reflect the scope & diversity of the tenx9 family, we would reshape the podcast so here are four stories (plus a mini-tale): Sara Neil, the tattoo & the scary mummy in Belfast; Susan Mitchell & a Mother’s Day outing in Oz; Louise Nealon & rural courtship in Kildare; Joe Nawaz & the threatening Spice Boys in Belfast. Dani Madsen shares a mini-story about Ma Madsen. Paul is your host.
