Episode 1351: Happy Christmas Eve – Paul Kimmage Sits In The Players Chair For Our Interview Of The Year
It’s Christmas Eve, and maybe you’re on your way home for a couple of days of peace and quiet with your family. So to ease you on the road, here’s a very special Christmas Eve show containing what might just be our favourite World Service interview of the year.
When Paul Kimmage sat down with Richie Sadlier for an episode of the Player’s Chair, we were unsure just how it would go. What we got was an emotional roller-coaster as Richie and Paul talked about where the anger and passion that drives Paul’s best work comes from, visiting Tom Humphries in jail, and the loss of Paul’s father, who he still misses terribly.
‘But part of it is in the act of turning the pedals, how that helps me process the things that can overwhelm me when my feet are on the ground.’

I loved today’s @secondcaptains pod which featured Eamon Dunphy & the phenomenally good @damiendelaney8 reviewing ‘Only A Game?’. One of my favourite shows of 2018?????????????https://t.co/aXCn8koH31 pic.twitter.com/UzizLCPwCw
