Ecumenical Matters - The Father Ted Podcast

Hosted by Belfast actor and writer James McAnespy, Ecumenical Matters is an episode-by-episode look back at the greatest sitcom ever, Father Ted. New guests each week discuss the legacy of Ted, the jokes and the humour. Each week we break down episodes and try to give better context for viewers - especially viewers who wouldn't be familiar with the Irish & Catholic aspects of the show. A particular example is our detailing of Bishop Brennan's first appearance, and how it was directly inspired by the scandal of a real life Bishop who had a son in America, and we provide more context for Dougal's night wear, the Ireland football jersey and why it would have been important to him at at that time. Regular features include a running count of Mrs Doyle's 'Ah Go Ons', a 'Meet your Maker' where we spot instances of Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews in the show, filling up Father Jack's drinks cabinet and we are trying to pick out a definitive top 5 over the course of the podcast!

More of This Sort of Thing (Careful Now)

This podcast is a welcome tribute to one of the best sitcoms ever written - the host (and guests) are infintely knowledgable on their subject, and being Irish, often provide snippets of insight that have been missed by viewers in England. Well worth a listen!


A great podcast that really delves into the history of the show. Great guests and really funny.
