Disturbing the Peace is a podcast focused on the less-talked-about topics in Ireland. Hosted by content creator and writer Rachel O’Neill, the podcast aims to tackle those subjects that you don’t always hear or read about. It might make you laugh, it might make you cry, it might even make you squirm. The point of it is to make you think about things and see things in a new light and maybe learn something while you’re at it. Follow us on @dtp_pod to keep up with all the latest news and if you’re looking for someone annoying on Twitter to follow, @ronronzo is your gal. Happy listening!
