The Tommy and Hector Podcast



  • Registered Users Posts: 59 ✭✭ Idiot boy

    Stopped listening a few weeks ago..i used to ĺook foreword to it.. gone a bit stale..

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,391 ✭✭✭✭ Cyrus

    yeah that was a bit of a low point the horse and young girls bit.

    To be fair its effectively comedy so some shows hit better than others, the two best of pods showcase it at its best.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,916 ✭✭✭ Reati

    You see, I don't think this is fully true. I actually think the "pod" is actually Tommy at his realist (compared to his produced image on the TT show). It's the real TT as he is at home and is some weird outlet for him. That said, I wonder why he stopped his own podcast.

    Anyway, it does seem to repeat the same 3 topics.

    Knockmore gaa

    Tommy pretending he wants to be some wandering shaman

    And Hector "Let me tell you about the time I was in..."

    Funny thing is, I actually think Hector is the main force keeping the topics moving. As he has all the stories from been on the road.

    Can't complain too much, it's free the odd episode I listen too though and I wouldn't miss it if they moved 100% paid either. I'd love to know how many paid subs they have.

    I'm amazed that this podcast is the most listened to every week in Ireland. It might not be for everyone but credit to the three of them for pumping out the content every week.

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,391 ✭✭✭✭ Cyrus

    Incredibly difficult when you think about it without guests , same 3 people week in week out.

    It's not, is it? I looked up the charts and it's in the top 5 most weeks tbf but it's not number one. Joe Regan for whatever reason is normally top.

    Less is more...its gone to the dogs, they need to liven it up a bit. They need guests and just do one episode a week. I agree with previous posts...Tommy's fantasy about wandering the world like a tramp...seriously just feck off and do it!! Yeah I said recently Hector was the saving grace of the show but kind of over his travel stories now. The two are arseholes to Hector though...and tbh the podcast would have gone down the toilet without him! Tiernan is a right creepy f$%ker at times, totally agree re previous comments. Laurita needs to take on a more powerful role, instead of being shocked by everything Tommy says. I'm kind of sick of the two **** on about Navan...and yip Knockmore 😴😴

    Laurita needs to get ta fcuk. At first I though she was needed as the straight-man between mental, funny, dark, cantankerous Tommy, and seanchaí Hector, with his gift for great storytelling, having the craic with Tommy, but after listening to her stupid questions and irritating ways I'm beginning to wonder what's the actual point of her on the show. I'm amazed she got this far; she must have some connections and push, because Tommy and Hector have genuine talent, but she's got none, in my opinion. I've a pain in my swiss listening to her.

    There are people in this thread who consider her essential to the podcast so she must appeal to some.

    It's been a while since anyone has defended her presence, mind you the thread itself isn't getting much attention.

    I thought she brought something of herself in the beginning but that's long passed. She's just a pain in the hole. Between her moaning and Tommy's kinda unsettling fixation on talking about "riding wimmin!" it's fairly unlistenable to for me.

    It's a waste of Hector. I'd like to see him doing something better within a Podcast format.

    Congrats to Laurita and Joe

  • Registered Users Posts: 907 ✭✭✭ onrail

    I only found out 2 weeks ago that Lairita's 'beloved' is Joe Brolly! Complete shock was an understatement.

    A bit odd that he's always kept anonymous on the pod. I wonder who has instructed that?

    Last week they were telling stories about guys in Somalia having 10 kids and one dying on the way to a food camp. This week Ireland is overpopulated and we need to stop having kids

  • Registered Users Posts: 765 ✭✭✭ Bellbottoms

    Hang on what? Tommy lived in Nigeria? What? When? Why?

    The podcast is gone very poor. If you listen to one of the earlier episodes and compare it with what they are dishing out now it's like night and day.

    I'm new enough to this podcast, the two lads are gas and have great chemistry together, I just wonder what Laurita brings to it? I can't warm to her.

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

    Holy fúck they got shítfaced on the Christmas podcast

    The podcast from Tigh Naghtan and Garavans in Galway.

    i was pure disgusted at their carry on in this podcast - they all came across as pure obnoxious.

    I feel sorry for anyone else that were in these pubs on that day

    Hector is really good and I love it when he goes on a long monologue.

    Tommy is tedious and Laurita is painful to listen to - always whining

  • Registered Users Posts: 457 ✭✭ MattressRick

    What did they say or do to the punters in the pubs?

  • Registered Users Posts: 457 ✭✭ MattressRick

    Even the ad they have out right now thanking people for all the listens ain't funny.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,962 ✭✭✭ alan partridge aha

    Why would anyone listen to a pri5k who apologised for nothing.
