The Tommy and Hector Podcast

    What happened with her?

  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 9,794 Mod ✭✭✭✭ humberklog

    Tommy's mother committed suicide about 15 years ago.

    Ah right. Didn’t know that either.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,964 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano

    Her sister too

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,410 ✭✭✭ StupidLikeAFox

    There was a bit in one of the earlier podcasts about digging her up in the dead of night with his brothers, burning her remains and spreading the ashes on slievenamon. Mad story

    Hector got a brown envelope from the antique shop, that’s for sure,

    So only just got into the pod, it's a great listen at times. Actually think Laurita is decent and well able for the two lads, but the constant talking about the farming, the GAA and Knockmore is a bit tiring now. that charity single was absolute cringe. Going through the episodes from the start, which one was it that was causing the controversy, the episode from Knockmore where Tommy was being a rude prick about Ballina?

    Also am I wrong in thinking, some of the content is a bit, well.... kinda racist. 'North African pricks' story springs to mind as well as the 'comedy' accents of Africans and indians, not comfortable with that...

    "did they go in through the vagina? "

    Lol, Tommy not the anatomy expert

  • Registered Users Posts: 602 ✭✭✭ dog_pig

    Do you reckon Tommy was saying those things because of his hatred for other races?

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,486 ✭✭✭ Raoul

    Yeah. Not sure why doing an accent is racist. Plus Tommy actually lived in Nigeria so maybe he just does a really good impersonation.

    Been disappointed with the last few podcasts. Seems like filler stuff that didn't make the cut for previous episodes.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,486 ✭✭✭ Raoul

    Maybe the partner is someone well known to the public ...

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,964 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano

    Think my humour level is low, i thought the bit about "sucking the tits off her" was hilarious. Also the salmon of knowledge bit. Everyone in navan has bradán feasa, the chippers sell it in batter.

    I have seen some previous comments online about one particular person, but I find it hard to believe....

    Each to their own I guess...thought it was a bit too crass tbh, especially two married fathers in their mid 50s😏

    Hectors story about being in Bulgaria was brilliant, as Tommy said, the guy can tell a story

  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]

    Totally agree, it was excellent, without Hector they wouldn't have a podcast!

    Hector is doing all the heavy lifting recently - Tommy & Lurita contributing next to nothing most weeks other than encouraging him to tell more hit and miss stories about his current and/or past travels escapades.

    Lurita badly needs to go on a girls holiday to Ibiza for a week or something to generate content.

    Anyway, the pod is slipping down my listening list rapidly - what is the subscription episode like?

  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 9,794 Mod ✭✭✭✭ humberklog

    Odd episode today. After 3 ads in the opener they just swung into Hector talking about awaiting a Covid clearance pass to travel from Serbia via Turkey and onto Dublin. It took them a while to get around to saying Hector had contacted Covid when in Belgrade. It was disjointed episode when it could've been far more coherent and interesting.

    Was it talked about in one of the previous paid episodes?

    Laurita's whingey interjections are making it almost unlistenable for me. She badly needs to start bringing something to the table.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,441 ✭✭✭ paddylonglegs

    The £750 story was brilliant. Great delivery from hector

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,152 ✭✭✭ BKWDR

    Beginning to think this podcast has run its course.

    Between the ads (the funniest one was the one for the taxi app which was put directly after the segment of laurita telling the story of her trying to get the guards to drive her home) and the replication of stories. It really is the Hector show and tbh I was never a huge fan of his but his story telling is really keeping it alive.

    I wouldnt even half consider paying for the bonus episode its gone so stale

    The push for the merch is a bit constant too.

    Tommy has some great rants but they're becoming hit and miss too. Describing the good looking young wan was a bit wtf

    Laurita is just getting a bit whingey and where I thought she was a good anchor for the two lads before, can't see it now. Even the 'knockmore' craic has long since run its course

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,615 ✭✭✭ Patsy167

    Hector's stories from Romania on the most recent episode were entertaining. He's the star of the show.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,212 ✭✭✭ ILikeBoats

    They're really good.

    Maria and Nickolai!

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,964 ✭✭✭✭ Cienciano

    I would agree but the donkey story about his newfound love for donkeys and how he felt something special when he hugged a donkey went on a bit long 😂

  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 9,794 Mod ✭✭✭✭ humberklog

    Curious to know if paid subscribers got fresh material over the Christmas?

    I notice that over on the free ones they posted 2 "best ofs" in the last couple of weeks.

    Haven't listened in ages and had an hour to kill so stuck on latest episode. Jesus it's fallen hard.

    Laurita getting offended because some Tommy knows a lad who said Asian woman have softer skin than western women. (literally all I remember her contribution was)

    Hector crowbaring "I was here" "I was there" into every segment was annoying. Only bit I enjoyed was Tommy calling him out on it. But like the Uncle from only fools and horses... "during the war..."

    That was annoying but wtf is with Tiernan. He was like an horny terrier. Every story had some innuendo to it. I thought the talk about being a bull and going and riding cows even if they didn't want it was a bit odd, but never to be afraid to hit rock bottom he proceeded to a story about a goat raping a woman only to finish off with his philosophy studies contemplating what 8 and 12 year old girls must think about when they see a horse with a hard cock.
