    The Irish Times Culture Podcast, and a lunchtime treat

    Laurence Mackin

    This week’s Irish Times Culture Podcast is now available for listening. Arts Editor Shane Hegarty, columnist Fintan O’Toole, and authors Declan Burke and Anna Carey discuss the future of publishing, the role of genre writing in Ireland, and the pros and cons of selling you book for 99c. You can listen to it here and leave your comments to boot.

    Our lunchtime recommendation for this week might stretch the lunchtime label a little, but it well worth irritating your boss over – Louis Lovett is back with The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly, but this time he is calling the Peacock in Dublin home. The show went down a minor storm at the Ark previously (and you can read Peter Crawley’s review here) and last week it did a round of schools shows. This week you can catch it at 2pm and 4pm most days, and the show lasts an hour. A perfect way to break up your afternoon. Click here for times and details.
