Gobshite's interviewed by the wonderful Malachi O'Doherty

IT was a pleasure to voice my admiration for Belfast author, broadcaster, journalist and podcaster Malachi O'Doherty (right)  previously here, but it was an even greater pleasure to chat to him about the future of big and small media on Thursday.
I did talk far too much, but it was brilliant to be speak to the great man and the result is available above.
Rather anachronistically for an author who has written much about the decline of Christianity in Ireland, I most associate Malachi with listening to him on Radio Ulster on a Sunday morning on the way home from mass in the car with the family, after Sunday Miscellany on RTE on the way there.
That, however,  may be an example of what (name drop, ahoy) Joe Strummer  once described to me as 'false memory syndrome.'
Please listen to extracts from his new book here and listen to the future of arts journalism and broadcasting here.
