Episode 2852: Donegal Land Of Innovation, Monaghan Down Dubs, Weather App Tactics
The National Football League is winning hearts and minds on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and the Irish version of the NFL kicked off this weekend, with some cracking games and away upsets.
Michael Murphy is back in the Second Captains saddle for another year, and he talks to us about conversations with Jim McGuinness about a sensational playing return, conversations for 10 years about Roger Schmidt and gegenpressing, and why 1-20 in Ballybofey in January is pretty good shooting.
We also discuss bogey teams in the GAA – Galway can’t beat Mayo, Monaghan can’t lose to Dublin (in the league, at any rate), and Mickey Harte is still inflicting pain on Kerry football.

An overwhelmingly powerful production – take the time to listen to Seán Brown's family talk with bravery on what they are going through in their fight for justice. Amazing words from Siobhán & Damán, speaking truth to power, an inspiration to us all. https://t.co/2yc0C37t2H
