The Dead Friends, Episode 2

In this episode you’ll learn what happened to Chill Out Timmy, hear about the trials and tribulations of a Curehead love affair, and encounter the curse of Edmund Spenser.

This is the second episode in my six-episode podcast memoir about five teenagers who gathered at a party in a bedsit in Dunmanway, West Cork during mushroom season in 1993 – a Curehead (me), a couple of ravers, a punk and a mod (Chill Out Timmy).

I’m the only one left on this Earth in 2018. I will delve into each of the four dead friends’ lives, and each of their deaths, in turn – before ending with a demon-haunted climax in Gatsby’s “niteclub”.

New episodes of The Dead Friends will be released each Wednesday from 26 September to 31 October. You can get them here on the Dublin Inquirer website, or via the Dublin Inquirer Podcast on iTunes or Stitcher, or on Libsyn.
