Taped on the night before Skinny & Houli depart for their second annual tour through Ireland, you can feel the anticipation in the air at Lizzie McNeill’s. We welcome new sponsor Steppenwolf Theatre to the show and then visit with a trio of Irish storytellers including Jessie Ann Foley, Matt Martin, and Tommy Finnegan who are all starring in the upcoming show on Sunday Nov. 2nd at the Underground Wonderbar, “Come Home Chicago”.   Listen to our weekly installment of Irish Cousins with Paudie Sheahan and Murty Ryan for some music and craic and a tune dedicated to retired Irish footballer PJ O’Dea, The Kilrush Sham! Houli tells a story of meeting Mary Kate Cooney and then we’re off to Ireland!
