Podcasting has well and truly hit mainstream media in Ireland. In the early days, when podcasting first started to take off in Ireland, the podcast charts were dominated by international podcasts such as Serial or This American Life. Nowadays, as Irish podcast listenership has increased, if you scroll through the Apple podcast charts you will see that Irish podcasts are among the most popular in the country. The Good Glow, Death becomes him and Brians Big Camp Christmas are regular fixtures in the top 10. With the growth of Irish podcast listeners year on year, podcasting is a medium the brands and businesses can no longer ignore. And Irish media organisations are investing heavily in original podcast series.

They have talked about everything from Disney movies to anti-drug PSAs to 1960s horror movies to 2000s pop-punk. If it was important to our guests when they were young and impressionable, we want to hear about it.

A podcast about picking up pieces, where she talks to people about how they coped or didn’t cope when life went off the rails. About the things that helped them put it all back together.

Brian Dowlings’ Death Becomes Him

When Brian Dowling lost his mum Rosie two years ago, it changed his outlook on life.

Grief is a complicated journey and one that Brian now endeavours to explore with the help of his friends and family. Over the course of seven episodes, join Brian and his nearest and dearest as they grow to understand death through open conversation, humour and honesty.

Latest podcast episode: 

Brian in conversation with his sisters – If you’ve been following or listening to my journey, you’ll know that this whole series was inspired by my desire to understand grief. Losing my mum two years ago turned my world upside down. She was my best friend, my rock, my guide. But of course, she wasn’t just my mum.

I am the older brother to six sisters; Michelle, Tracy, Valerie, Aoife, Paula and Tara. Each of us had our moments with Mum, like Michelle’s morning phone call or Aoife’s tea and chats at the table. We each have our own memories, our own sorrows and our own experiences of grief.

I wanted to sit down with my sisters and have an honest conversation about losing mum, and how we all feel two years later. While this podcast started as an endeavour to discover whether I’ll ever feel like me again, today I ask the even harder question – how can we be us without her.

We start where this journey started, talking about the day she passed.
