Chapter 65: One Zero Con with Rob Hartnett


This week the lads welcomed Rob Hartnett to Fitzpatrick's Castle in a bid to learn more about the commercial side of sport. 

Rob Hartnett is the CEO of Sport for Business and one of the men behind the biggest sport and technology conference in Ireland this year, The One Zero Con, in Dublin's RDS. The One Zero Con takes place October 21st and key note speakers include Lance Armstrong, Sir Clive Woodward and Shane Lowry. 

Rob joins the lads around the 47 minute mark of the podcast but before Rob popped into the studio at Fitzpatrick's Danny and Mero went about solving some of life's great mysteries. Mysteries like where do sayings come from and is it true Adolf Hitler had a brother who roamed the streets of Dublin?

Chapter 64: Jason Brophy


This week the lads are joined by a man who is responsible for ushering in the golden age of style in the borough. Jason Brophy is the creative director of Men's Hair Co. - One of Dublin's most popular and beloved barbers.

Having spent the best part of a decade honing his skills and mastering the craft, Jay opened the doors of his first shop in 2014 as a one man show and now, less than two years later he has a second shop and an entire team leading the way in men's grooming. 

You can check out menshairco.ie for more and make an appointment with the lads in either Bray or Dun Laoghaire today. 

Chapter 63: Aonghus Óg McAnally


This week the lads are joined by one of the nicest men in Irish entertainment and a third generation actor - the great Aonghus Óg McAnally. He is a third generation actor, following in the footsteps of his father Aonghus McAnally and his grandfather, the late, brilliant Ray McAnally. 

Aonghus has done it all in the acting world, from award winning performances treading the boards of international theatres, to starring on both the small screen and big screen. On top of all this he is the man behind Irish production company Rise and commentator for the amazing OTT Wrestling. 

We spoke to Aonghus about acting, wrestling, The Dublin Fringe Festival, Mother Teresa and a whole lot more... including the best Tinder story you will hear for a long time. 

Aonghus will be featuring in The Dublin Fringe Festival from September 21st-24th in the Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar as he stars in the play, "Traitor". Follow @AonghusOg on Twitter for more. 

Chapter 62: Dr. Cara Augustenborg


This week on the award winning WTSpod Danny & Mero had the pleasure of welcoming climate scientist, lecturer and current Chairperson of Friends of Earth Ireland, "The Verdant Yank", Dr. Cara Augustenborg. 

Climate change is arguably the biggest challenge facing humans in the history of our existence - and yet, there are still a number of people who dedicate time, money and energy to denying what 97% of scientists agree on.Its happening, and humans are the driving force. 

Climate Change is accelerating at an alarming rate with some predictions claiming that summers in the Arctic will be ice free within a few years, but sometimes the arguments can be very heavy and laden with technical talk that is mind bending. With that in mind Dr, Cara tries to simplify it all and look at the problem through the simple minds of two lads from Ballybrack that like spicebags and cans of fanta.
