Podcast: February 4, 2017

Flood Brothers Disposal presents The Skinny and Houli show and we’re joined by Skinny on the phone to open the show. Our first guests are this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Queen, Maura Connors, and her court, Theresa McDermott and Maddie Mitchell. Maura is a Southsider and she talks to Houli about the lead up to her win. Theresa and Maddie give us a little insight into their lives outside of the contest. All three ladies chat about their Irish heritage, families and we get all the juicy details that surround the contest. These girls are lovely to chat with! Our second guest is this year’s Parade Grand Marshall, Marty Healy. Marty is renowned as one of the top lawyers in Illinois and he tells us a little about his own business. Houli and Marty delve deep into conversation about Irish heritage, their families and they also take a look at the importance of this year’s parade theme of ‘Immigration’. As always, we have our ‘Who Died?’ segment and Houli finishes off the show with a typical Houli joke! We’re ready for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations after this show, so be sure to have a listen to get yourself into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit!
