Sligo Tourism gal Aine Chambers spotted heself on Podge and Rodge. She stated:
The popular RTE Two Podge & Rodge comedy show co-hosted by the lovely Lucy Kennedy, featured SligoZone.net on Monday night’s show.
While I always knew Podge & Rodge were very popular, I was truly amazed at the amount of hits this site received following the Show,
from a daily normal of a few thousand to over 50,000 hits mainly from Ireland and the UK in the first 24hrs. alone! 🙂
The feature generated rare positive and priceless exposure for Sligo on national television. The Podge & Rodge Show is due for repeat on Friday night next at 11.05pm RTE Two.
I’m betting there’s going to be a lot more visitors to sligo this year. Anyone able to do a Google Maps mashup showing where Aine has shot her videos from? Would be a fun project.
â€œI think that there has to be some sort of correlation between the lack of female comedians and the relative shortfall of women in senior management positions.â€?
organisations might be better off funding programs which encourage women to take up public speaking or even stand-up comedy rather than simply setting up grants to encourage them into specific industries
and maybe we could also, you know, fund iniatives to get them to learn about how to talk about soccer and rugby so they can be one of the lads but in a manner not to make the lads feel even more inferior because a female knows more about their macho topic than they do. We could also teach them to play golf which is great for networking.
There are lots of reasons why women are not in senior positions. I wonder how many women that do hold senior positions are married and have families? I would say a lot less again. To say it is because they are, in genera,l bad orators and need to tell more jokes doesn’t seem quite credible. I think Piaras is just trolling the ladies on International Womenâ€™s Day to get a buzz going. A good fight now and then is great.
Wait and see. Like Phil Collins, I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord.
Been up since 0530 this morning. Long day.
Splinster talks about 12 Angry Men and why it breaks the rules of writing. 12 characters. One room for most of the fim. Yet it’s a classic. Break more rules!
Wait for a killer, illegal video to be posted on YouTube – grab a copy yourself and put it on your site -as youâ€™re sure itâ€™ll get yanked down by YouTube soon enough.
I suggest we need a cross between Digg and bittorrent with the content being distributed so it can never be killed off. I go to a restaurant and I can eat my food the way I want and I can play with it before I eat it. Why are the content makers so adamant that people want to the same with digital content and won’t let them? They should have learned by now that humanity is made to disrupt and circumvent. It’s the nature of their nature.
The other Dave interviewed on a podcast. No, not that Dave. Other Dave.
