||The Return of the Seanachai||Why was I away so long?||2/19/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
The Seanachai is, for lack of a better term, the killer podcast. I get people into podcasting by playing a CD I've burned with a few episodes of the Seanachai on it, and then telling them that there's more, if only they'll let me set up their iTunes to get it for them. . . . Patrick McLean is extraordinarily talented, has an excellent ear for dialogue and for voice, and is one of the better producers of original content around now. I look forward to the How to Succeed in Evil comic, or more original podcasts, or whatever form his work comes in.
***** (as in five stars, not anything else)
GrEaT!!! I do not know how else to describe it. He is an awesome story teller. I have told all of my friends about this podcast. One even got iTunes just for this one podcast. Amen to The Seanachai. (I memorized how to spell Seanachai i loved it so much:)
Thanks, Mr. McLean
Just amazing. Start at the beginning, with the first show!
