The legendary Guilty Feminist is set to land at Vicar Street once again on November 6. With over 35 million downloads under their belt, host Deborah Frances-White and a special guest are set to light up the stage.

They're scheduled to chat about noble goals as 21st century feminists, and the paradoxes and insecurities which undermine them. If you were lucky enough to catch them in Ireland last time, you'll be a superfan by now.

The UK's number one LGBTQ+ podcast is landing with a bang, and it's possibly the show we're the most excited about.

A Gay and a NonGay is coming to the Sugar Club on November 10, with BFFs James Barr and Dan Hudson covering the differences between LGBTQ+ and NonGay people to life on stage in a ridiculously simple but gas premise.

Comedy duo The 2 Johnnies return with their biggest live show yet after a sold-out event at the Vodafone Comedy Festival. The pair have been number one on Ireland's podcast charts every week for 80 weeks.

They're performing at Vicar Street on November 14, with serious topics such as riding, Gaelic games and parish news to cover.

The topics range from pop culture to women's rights, through a mainly satirical lens, but you're bound to get a good laugh from them.

The Dollop will arrive at Liberty Hall on November 21, bringing US history to the stage with comedian hosts Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds.

History buff Dave decided to turn his hobby into a podcast. Each episode he reads one strange and disturbing story from the American past to Gareth, who is clueless about the tales.

Gareth's hilarious reactions are why The Dollop is in the top 20 downloaded comedy podcasts in the US, Canada, and Australia.

It Galz hosts Jenny Claffey and Lindsay Hamilton will be recording a live version of their podcast, and we'll be sitting front row (Outcider in hand). 

Their show will be held on Saturday, September 29. 

Free flowing and far from contrived, the galz, who are best friends IRL, use their own experiences to illustrate life as a woman in this country.

From Repeal to Bloggers Unveiled to vaginal discharge, there are no off-limits topics. 

It's high time Ireland had more women taking to the podcast podium to express themselves and project the feelings of their fellow females, and Jenny and Lindsay are doing exactly that. 

While their own personal brand of feminism may be outside the prescribed norm, and at times, controversial, the pair debate and divulge in the most relatable way.

If you fancy seeing the gals in action, tickets are going for €18.00 here

Find them on SpotifyiTunes, and Soundcloud
