Chapter 34: Tony McGregor, What’s the story?

00:0000:00

This week sees an old friend drop into WTStowers in Fitzpatrick's Castle Hotel. Danny & Mero are reunited with their very first guest from way back when WTSpod launched, Tony McGregor. 

In a bizarre twist the circumstances of Tony's visit are exactly the same as they were last July. His son, The Notorious Conor McGregor is just days away from fighting a Brazillian for a UFC world championship when disaster strikes and the Brazillian withdraws from combat citing injury. Nine months ago it was the emphatic feather weight kingpin Jose Aldo who went running, this time it was lightweight champ, Rafael Dos Anjos. 
News of RDA pulling out of the UFC 196 broke the day we sat down with Tony so we discussed this with him as well as learning about Nate Diaz pretty quickly. 
We spoke to Tony about life since Conor took home the gold and got an insight into what Tony has been up to since we last spoke to him. 
We talk a little bit about history and Foley artists as well as looking at what the future may have in store for Conor McGregor.

Chapter 33 (Part 2): Election 2016, What’s the story?

00:0000:00
Cormac Devlin - Fianna Fáil
This week on WTSpod we've gone political. General Election 2016 is just days away and it could be one of the most important elections in Irish history. So, to help you make a decision we approached all the major party candidates in the Dun Laoghaire constituency to ask (amongst other things) 1. Why should people vote for you? and 2. Why should people vote for your party? 
Cormac Devlin - Fianna Fáil 
In part one of our election special we spoke to Sinn Fein's Shane O'Brien who is bidding to become the first ever Sinn Fein TD for the Dun Laogaire Constituency.
In part two we spoke to Fianna Fáil's Cormac Devlin who has been a councillor in Dun Laoghaire for over 10 years and is hoping to be elected to Dáil Eireann at first time of asking. 
In part three we spoke to Renua Ireland's Frank Cronin. A Cork native that has been living in Dublin since the late 80's, Frank Cronin is a business man who has been CEO of such organisations as Newstalk Radio and The Sunday Tribune. It is the first time Frank is standing for any kind of political office. 
Danny & Mero give their breakdown of the Dun Laoghaire constituency and provide the historical context for how voting tends to swing in the borough. 
Polling day for Election 2016 is February 26th, get out there and make a difference.

Chapter 31: What’s the story with Mero & Danny?

00:0000:00

Coming to you from the beautiful surroundings of Fitzpatrick's Castle Hotel, Mero & Danny start their podcasting life without Lindsey and get use to their new location. 

Trump watch is back as the lads discuss Donald Trump's hair and presidential campaign. This leads to the question "is the world of politics as evil as House of Cards would suggest"? 
All the talk in Ireland is of the impending General Election so we talk about what we want from the people who want our votes. We also advise that we have approached a number of local politicians to come on WTSpod and tell you, the people, why they should vote for them. 
The Six Nations is upon us and Danny can't wait to spend his weekend staring at the gogglebox watching rugby. We have our now weekly discussion regarding concussion and in particular Irish fly-half Johnny Sexton who has a history of concussion issues. 
Nostalgia pays a visit as we talk about a hero of our childhood, Bret "The Hitman" Heart. The Hitman announced in the past few days he is battling prostate cancer so we lend our support and talk about our love of the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. This leads to talks of childhood memories and wrestling matches from years gone by, including the tragic circumstances of Owen Hart's death. 
 
We also pick the winner of our Mark Baker / Conor McGregor competition. Remember to subscribe like and share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Check out our previous chapters on iTunes, Stitcher and all podcast directories just search WTSpod.
