Chapter 68: Joanne McNally


This week on the award winning WTSpod we welcomed one of Ireland's brightest talents to Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel. 

Joanne McNally is one of the current hosts of hit RTE comedy series "Republic of Telly" and is a regular on the radio waves also. She is a hugely popular comedienne and star of productions like Singlehood, Separated at Birth and most recently Bite Me. 

From shoplifting to fuel an eating disorder to approaching her biological father for the first time through Facebook pokes, Joanne is definitely one of the most interesting and entertaining guests we've had the pleasure of talking to so far. 

All of this and the lads have more documentary suggestions, congratulations are being dished out and Danny is back tracking on Trump.
