Hey guys! The Craic is flying in Episode 3 of Make it a Double!: Irish Craic. Craic is the Gaelic word for good times, but as we discuss we begin to learn that it’s more than simply good times, it’s the special thing shared between friends that makes it the good times.


In this episode we talk Irish Whiskey, Guinness being good for you, Pub life, Irish drinking tunes and of course Irish Craic. We also talk a little on the Irish Troubles and how the drink the Irish car bomb was born from it.

 

I talk with Annie Nice from Tir Na Nog, Downtown Raleigh’s Original Irish Pub. She’s a native of Ireland and shares her stories and experiences with us. Learn more and find out what’s going on at Tir Na Nog by visiting them at www.tnnirishpub.com. On Sunday’s, Tir Na Nog hosts a Traditional Irish Music session. Jerry Ryan, who is a regular of those sessions, also joins us to discuss his experiences with Irish Craic. 

James Olin Oden Joins us. I was extremely excited to have sat down with him. He is a dynamic singer/song writer from Raleigh, NC who plays a vast collection of stirring, Irish, Scottish, English and original songs inspired by Celtic and American traditions. A passionate story teller and captivating instrumentalist. Check out James’ website for more info, listen to his music and watch videos at www.jamesoden.com.
