‘My handsome, handsome prince.’This week on Up To 90, we talk Sarah Ferguson.

Hurled into the public life Fergie found the life of a royal newly wed a lonely one, and soon began appearing in public with a string of Texan businessman.Two kids later and a separation, it was the infamous ‘toe-sucking’ which became Fergie’s undoing and resulted in her being divorced by 1996. A dalliance with Weight Watchers, numerous TV appearances and more scandal involving bribes and ‘money for access’ deals have made Fergie the most radioactive royal of the lot.

‘He’s talking about blow**** Julie’This week on Up To 90, we chat family entertainer turned media pariah Michael Barrymore.Michael Barrymore quickly rose through the ranks of television to become a Saturday night staple and firm favorite loved by millions. His first brush with scandal came in the form of a rehab stint, followed by a very public coming out story; but it was the tragic events of a house party in March 2001 that would mar his career irreparably.The girls explain the true meaning behind the lyrics with ‘Blow My Whistle Bitch’, reminisce about girls who didn’t actually love girls (Tatu), and hypothesize on Greg from Love Island’s convenient break-up timing (absolutely no judgement but we are team Amber for life).

70: John Leslie
‘Let’s just stop all the fiddling around the edges’This week on Up To 90, the girls look back at 90s TV’s John Leslie and his gargantuan fall from grace. The Edinburgh native was the first Scottish presenter on Blue Peter before moving on to Wheel of Fortune and GMTV.Very much a media darling, he courted interest not just for his presenting skills but also his chequered love life. It was an autobiography by fellow 90s media darling Ulrikka Jonnson however, which ultimately began a series of events leading to the excommunication of John Leslie from television circles, and the demise of what was once an extremely promising career.Group sex romps, cocaine use, allegations of sexual impropriety, a catalogue of court cases and never ending speculation make Leslie’s story one of continued fascination.In other news, Emma explains why she loves dragging boys

‘So basically she just kept fucking phones at people’This week on Up To 90, we talk Queen of the 90s Catwalk – Naomi Campbell.Naomi Campbell burst onto the scene at the tender age of 15 having been discovered whilst shopping in London. Within a short period she had graced the cover of most major fashion magazines, defying racist bias in an industry that had been previously been very much white-centric.She quickly became a pop cultural sensation, starring in music videos, movies and dating some very famous people: most notably Adam Clayton, of U2 stratospheric game.However one thing that had always marred Naomi’s success was her notorious temper: with numerous accusations of physical and verbal abuse, how is it that we still remain helplessly fascinated by Naomi?In other news, Emma’s got an ingenious financial plan but Julie worries her lackluster wr

‘And you’re just sitting there with your Aisling copy like – ’This week on Up To 90, we talk nineties daytime talk show ‘Jenny Jones’.The former standup spearheaded the saucy post-lunchtime slot which saw gang members renounce their allegiances, women find out who’s the daddy and extreme makeovers show schoolyard bullies just what they were missing.‘Jenny Jones’ ran from 1991 to 2003 and was not without its controversy, most notably in 1995 when a ‘secret crush’ resulted in a shocking murderer which called into question the morality behind parading personal narratives in such a public forum.The killing forced viewers to pose the question: was this show exploitative? Or could no TV team be expected to predict how one man would react with such fatal consequences?We talk Bethlehem, troubled childhoods, star searches and accountability in thi

‘We all had that Geri Halliwell friend who was like ‘I think my parents are separating.’ This week we talk Jaycee Lee Dugard. In a case that stunned the world, Jaycee Dugard was a little girl abducted in broad daylight and never seen again until 18 years later when she was re-introduced to the world having borne two children to the man who had kidnapped and held her captive for nearly two decades. The case defied all credulity when it emerged that there had been a catalogue of missed opportunities to rescue Jaycee, and a series of police and parole blunders had allowed her tormentors (Philip Garrido and his wife Nancy) to prolong their reign of terror and continue to hold this young girl in nightmarish conditions. It was a visit to University of California Berkeley campus that proved to be Philip Garredo’s undoing, with a special events officer informing authorities that the two young girls in

‘I don’t know how you men carry those around all day.’ This week on Up to 90 we head down the wormhole with the very hilarious comedian extraordinaire and King Comedy Roaster Jim Elliott. A native of Washington DC, Jim explores the cultural significance of a little-known sitcom called ‘Seinfeld’. The show itself reinvented television in a myriad of ways, but it was the show’s mean-spirited and unlikeable characters that really captured the world’s imagination. The brainchild of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David, ‘the show about nothing’ garnered a cult following and mass critical acclaim before it became a ratings hit in season 4 with its ‘meta-narrative’ take on television production. We chat Elaine dances, Festivus, George’s fiancée’s untimely demise, Kramer’s ability to storm through doors, Jerry’s ability to play himself, and many, many in-jokes. We discuss Soup-Nazis, m

Meath.We recall drinking on the job, pretending to be famous cyclists and the need to warm up the oven in intimate situations. Emma ensures she is ‘brand ready’ in a series of effortless product placement moments and Julie brings absolutely zero knowledge whatsoever. Luckily hilarious comic Padraig has brought Reese’s, tales

60: Michelle Smith and Olympic Scandal
'A good day for Michelle at the 1992 Olympics consisted of not drowning in the pool'The year is 1996 and Atlanta Georgia is hosting the Olympic games. Despite having faired pretty poorly in previous Olympic outings, this was the year that a relatively elderly Irish swimmer by the name of Michelle Smith stunned the world and infuriated American competitors by winning 3 gold and a bronze.Given the fact ireland didn't even have a 50 meter pool at the time, combined with the minor detail that her trainer-husband had been found guilty of doping it was hardly surprising that rumours were rife as to what had really propelled this 26 year old out of nowhere. It came as little surprise when a tampered urine sample in 1998 curtailed Smith's competitive career, but did such a development forever taint her Olympic win, or was 'whiskey in the jar' gate blown completely out if proportion?If you ever swam against Michelle Smith or took

57: The Nanny
‘I just shave it everyday.’ This week on Up To 90 we talk The Nanny. The show was a massive success from the years 1993 to 1999; televised in 80 countries and capturing the hearts of millions with its take on the old My Fair Lady narrative. We chat bikini waxes, SPF, why Julie can no longer hang out on Australian beaches and we go the dark place of quacking. Emma talks possible paternity tests, we bump into Cathy live on air and drop the Oprah bomb at least 17 times during the course of the episode. Is Guinness the Irish equivalent of the poppy flower? Is that unfair to heroin? Why is Julie getting swimsuit ready for a city break? Does Julie have a secret boyfriend? If so, why all the cloaks and daggers? Hold onto your man – we’re chatting all things Fran in this The Nanny special.

‘Can you believe someone working in a bank can sing’ This week on Up To 90, we take a look back at everyone’s favourite song contest – The Eurovision. Accompanied by our musical maestro Fred Cooke expect a serious sing song as we get our best vocals on. Has Emma finally found her musical soulmate in Frederick Bernard Michael Joseph Cooke? Will Julie give them her blessing or be a bit of a dick about it? All shall be revealed... Ireland dominated the show for the majority of the 90s, winning 4 out of 5 consecutive Shows and having a serious claim to a certain Norwegian triumph. We rebelled in Riverdance and made vow sheds looked cool; we got one over on the age-old enemy and watched as the fall of Communism effectively Com-blocked ya from ever claiming a 4/5 again... We talk banking employees with talent; Johnny Logan; getting days off work; Johnny Logan; losing the plot; Johnny Logan; forgetting lyrics, political controversies and animal shelters. And Johnny

55: Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky
‘I did not have sexual relations with that woman’ This week on Up to 90 we talk the epitome of the American dream, the man born into a single-parent family in a Arkansas trailer park who went on to become the leader of the free world: William Jefferson Blythe III aka Bill Clinton. Born in Hope, Arkansas, 1946, the charismatic Clinton swiftly rose through educational and social ranks to become one of America’s youngest ever governors in 1979. Dubbed the ‘comeback kid’ he lost his seat before securing re-election and went on to secure the Democratic ticket in 1992 before ultimately defeating the incumbent President George HW Bush. Known for his stewardship of economic and social reform he became only the second Democratic President to be returned to office and it was during this second run the shit really hit the fan. We chat how a sex scandal nearly toppled the presidency, discuss slut-shaming, cyber-bullying and myosgny of epidemic proportions. We tal

‘Eat your f*cking burger’ This week on Up To 90 we give everyone what they want – it’s Friends baby. We talk money, Joey, Jennifer Aniston’s propensity for rewinding of an evening, unrealistic storylines, leather pants, negotiations, marrying Paul Rudd, ripping off Seinfield and forced friendships in this iconic series. We ask the big Friends questions: should we be reporting Emma to the social? Why is one of this ginger duo on the brink of ordering anchovies on the pizza? Could Emma still fulfill her dream of teaching Irish to the masses? What did her teacher really mean when she described her as ‘great’? What would Shane do? What’s YOUR favourite loading bay?

53: My So-Called Life
‘I’m sorry but Angela would want to f*ck right off’ This week on Up To 90, we talk Angela Chase and the seminal coming of age ‘ My So-Called Life ’ Appearing on TV screens a few months after the suicide of Kurt Cobain; the show went head to head for its first and only series with the heavy hitter ‘Friends’, before causing ripples of shock when it was cancelled after 19 episodes. Many posit the reason for its lack of network support with the gritty reality it portrayed, controversy abounded at its exploration of drugs, alcohol and teenage sexuality. But the series made an indelible mark in many a teenage soul and of course gave the world the one and only Jared Leto-lazy eyelids and all. The protagonist Angela Chase (played by Clare Danes) became synonymous with teenage angst and her comrades Ricki Vasquez and Riyan let her glimpse through the keyhole at a world much more complicated than her own; but it was the central storyline which explored her obse

52: Buffy The Vampire Slayer
‘There are you are 15 years of age fancying Davey Jones’ This week on Up To 90, our favourite ginger duo are joined by stylist and Buffy Superfan Martha Gilheaney to talk about the lady who sold red leather pants as activewear. We talk ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ – a groundbreaking series which broke the mould by having a physically strong and fearless heroine at the helm and explored sexuality, gender roles and complex family dynamics in a show which subverted expectations and paved the way for a new era of teen cult phenomenon. What was it about this female protagonist that quickly garnered a cult following? What is it about changing the men in our lives that gives us such a thrill? Why is RTE always 3 decades after the fact when it comes to buying rights to TV hit shows? Has Emma admitted to fancying another male? What in the name of all that is nineties is going on? What happened those ginger Eurovision twins and how is Martha inextricably linked to our second fa

51: It's Britney Bitch
'Julie, be honest, are you on or off the meds?' This week on Up To 90, the girls talk medication, mice, fake tan and queen of pop Ms Britney Spears. Having ascended to the throne of tweenie sensation as part of Mickey Mouse Cub, Britney became an overnight sensation that effectively dominated the pop charts throughout the late nineties and noughties. From her vows of chastity to provocative Rolling Stone covers, hers was a path that was fraught with controversy as her manufactured image seemed to place increasingly contradictory demands on the young performer and ultimately culminated in her much-covered breakdown of 2007. We chat controlling mothers, mixed messages, gross record label bosses and their ideas of sexing it up, dodgy lyrics and how NOT to get over an ex (Justin Timberlake, please take note). When will the world accept Julia and Emma for their dim-sum skin tones? Can someone please call the fire brigade on Emma's Sunday bonfires? Is J

50: Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield: The Bite Fight
'The leather skirts have to stop. This is an audio medium.' On 28th June 1997, the world watched as two of the world's biggest boxing stars fought for the much coveted heavyweight title of the world. Having been on the back foot in Round One and Two, Tyson made the obvious choice in biting his opponent's ear (both of them). When later asked about this in a much-viewed Oprah interview, he said: 'I did it because I was upset'. Hard to argue with that logic. The man who sought to make facial tattoos great again went on to be disqualified by the Nevada State Commission for 15 months and the moment fast became one of the most notorious sporting moments of the nineties. Have you lost a chunk of your ear in a brawl watched by millions? Why did Tyson insist on fighting only the world's hottest men? (Lennox Lewis, please stand up). In this episode Emma admits to fancying at least two people. Has Julie's relentless probing finally broken her? Wh

49: Princess Diana
‘Elton and his fcking candle in the fcking wind’ This week on Up To 90, we chat the Queen of Hearts: Princess Diana. We talk irreconcilable differences, age-gaps, Panorama interviews, how to throw shade at the Queen, creepy butlers, Royal titles and eating disorders in this Princess of Wales special. When did Julie lose all personality and start buying pot plants in Ikea? Will the stories about lost keys ever end? Is Prince Phillip battery operated? Do we need to a Jeremy Kyle once and for all to determine whose the daddy on our favourite Prince H? Who was really to blame for the fall-out between Princess Diana and England’s most eligible bachelor? Was the Royal Family really behind her untimely demise? Why did her death lead to such a huge outpouring of grief? What was it about Diana that made her story move so many? We also dare to criticize Queen Oprah on her insistence that she’s never lost her temper and questions Elton’s advertising cho

48: The Murder of Sophie Toscan du Plantier
‘My fake name is Mairead Kelly.’ This week on Up To 90 we talk a murder that shook nineties regional Ireland: the as yet unsolved murder of Madame Sophie Toscan du Plantier. On 23rd December 1996, the body of Sophie Toscan du Plantier was found in the small community of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. From the outset the case was plagued with unanswered questions and little if any tangible clues; but local suspicion fell on fellow ‘blow-in’; Ian Bailey. This was a case that explored bias towards divorced women; exposed another social taboo at the time in rural Ireland which was that of domestic violence, threw eccentricities into the spotlight, introduced Irish media to salacious rumours and conspiracy theories, asked questions of Garda policing decisions and remains an open case that has haunted communities and families for over two decades.

47: Nineties in The News
‘I had to do a poo in the dark and it was totally traumatizing.’ This week on Up To 90, we talk nineties in the news, with our favourite middle-aged gingers chatting Keith Flint and Luke Perry’s untimely passings. We also discuss the horrifying documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’. In more nineties in the news, we chat the gentle genius behind the Prodigy frontman’s hardcore exterior, their groundbreaking videography and celebrity tributes. Dylan Mc Kay gave many females the feelings but we look at what was Luke Perry’s undeniable discomfort with being a Beverly Hills James Dean heartthrob, his continued appeal in Riverdale and of course our perennial penchant for those edgy bad boys. Meanwhile the girls revisit the longtime disquiet about the dark side of Michael Jackson in the wake of the searing documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’, which catalogues his career as what would it appear to be a serial child abuser.

'You’re not putting the domestos beside the chicken fillets thanks’ This week on Up To 90, we talk pine-nuts, B*Witched, pine-nuts, double denim, pine-nuts, fancy ear rings, pine-nuts and much much more. B*Witched were an Irish girl group who claimed to fight ‘like their Das as well’, had a habit of putting Donna Air in awkward positions, and just generally stormed the UK charts from 1997 to 2002. We chat the hits, the flops, selling albums, jealousies, head-wrecks, all-rounders and big reunions, but really this episode pivots around the big questions that nobody save us two pioneering ginger warriors are brave enough to ask: why are pine-nuts so expensive? What are our ears made out of? Why are teenagers flying to Zambia to build schools when they can’t even make their own beds? Why is Julie still mourning a ruler? Is the butterfly farm of her youth another imagined memory in her neurotic meanderings? We also look at where the B*Witched girls are now and

This week on Up To 90, we’re getting all ‘my perogative’ and chatting about the consummate bad boy himself, Mr. Bobby Brown.We talk difficult upbringing; his many, many children; Bobby’s influence (or lack thereof) on his famous spouse, and what exactly went wrong in what quickly became a tragically toxic relationship with his late singer-wife.We also discuss life u-turns; the ill-judged reality show, Being Bobby Brown; New Edition; introverts versus extroverts; parental failings; Christianity; promiscuity; addiction, and music in this episode which sees Emma and Julie delve into the complicated world of one of hip-hop’s most notorious nineties princes.If you’ve enjoyed this episode please don’t forget to download (rather than just listen!) as we’ve only recently discovered that this is what actually counts in chart-terms; who knew?If you can help us with a

43: Backstreet Boys with Jen Hatton
‘Catch me outside, how ‘bout that?’ This week on Up To 90 we chat to mocedian/internet sensation and sketch extraordinaire Jen Hatton about the ‘Backstreet Boys’ and everything from Aaron Carter to Dr Phil, from Hartstown discos to celebrity rehabs, the power of a good Halloween-themed video and the reason why you should never threaten to kill a cat in front of Jen Hatton (hint, it will inevitably result in you being locked in sketch video eternity as inspiration behind her most successful and hilarious character to date). Jen’s polish accent is spot on, Emma floors us with her impression of a gangster-rapping petulant American teen, and Julie bangs on about a recent heckle which made an indelible mark on her soul (she’s clearly completely over it and rarely talks about it in public). Please note this is the Backstreet Boys episode where we don’t talk about the Backstreet Boys so before Julian Assange gets out of an Ecuadorian embassy and onto our case let’s

42: Marky Mark
‘He was the first poster to give me the feelings’ This week on Up To 90, we talk everyone’s favorite wannabe rapper and underpants wearer Mark Wahlberg aka Marky Mark. Growing up in Southie Boston, the younger brother of Donnie Wahlberg (New Kids on The Block anyone?) meant Marky Mark had more than enough street-smarts to merit his progression into gangster rap but it was ability to wear underwear whilst looking straight ahead that really saw him ascend to the upper echelons of early nineties stardom with lightning speed. We talk his criminal past; drug problems and dedicating books to your penis. We also explore the murky world of naked photoshoots, the advantages of doing ‘family time’ when your kids are at school, and setting aside an hour and a half every day for a shower. We touch upon violent attacks Mark committed as a teenager as well as his impressive turns in such classic films as Boogie Nights and The Departed, which confirmed his status as an acto

‘She only rides him when she has AIDS’This week on Up to 90 we talk Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump.Emma delves deep this time, having recently discovered a new search engine called ‘Google’ which allows her to verify all her Forrest Gump facts, figures, and even Oscar wins, so fans of water sports can back the f*ck up.How on earth did Tom perfect the character he had already perfected in Big? Was it all a load of gimmicks? Did he really win an Oscar? How can we possibly confirm this? What is this Wikipedia of which you speak?We chat trench coats, strip clubs, pity snuggles, child actors and Robin Wright (formerly of the Penn). We conclude that life is most certainly not a box of chocolates and Emma confirms her status as the best woman for accents in like the whole world ever.If you’re looking to tell us we’re wonderful please get in touch at Twitter or Instagram @Upto90Podcast, and don’t forget to rate us on iTunes x<p style='color:grey;

40: Vanilla Ice
'Lights, lights, baby.' This week on Up To 90, we chat Robert Matthew Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice. This 90s icon proves to be a lot more likeable than you'd think, as the girls dissect the rise and fall of the Hip Hop Man with those trademark boy-band dimples. Vanilla Ice was a hip-hop artist who came up the rap ranks having supported the likes of Public Enemy, Run DMC and MC Hammer, only to cause a bit of a storm when he became the first hip hop artist to ever reach number one with his gargantuan hit 'Ice, Ice Baby'. 160 million records later, Vanilla Ice is now living a 'real life' in Florida, raising kids and selling light fixtures with a distinctly tongue in cheek pitch. What happened the millions? Why did he become involved with Ninja Turtles? How bad was his movie 'Cool As Ice'? (Answer: very). What's his beef with Eminem? Did Suge Knight really threaten to throw him off a balcony? What was the deal with his dallia

39: Murphy Brown with Brian Gallagher
'I'm sorry Brian but sex cults ARE wrong.' This week on Up To 90, we invite the lovely TRY CHANNEL FACTS CHANNEL INTERNET SENSATION Brian Gallagher to chat – Murphy Brown. The show saw Candice Bergen starred as Murphy Brown, an investigative journalist for FYI, a fictional CBS newsmagazine. Over 40 and single, she's a bit of an Emma Doran: tough as nails and juts a little bit scary. Like Julie, Murphy Brown is a bag of issues having returned from a stint in the Betty Ford Treatment Centre. Also like Julie she lives in perpetual fear of replacement. The show was pioneering in showcasing a woman busting a few balls, championing single-parenthood whilst also keeping it extremely current by finding inspiration from 90s political moments: it's function as mirror for American social happenings was only furthered by its 2018 reboot following the election of political wallflower Donald J.

Madge was a busy aul bee during the 90s but still made plenty of time for the fellas, pretty much the opposite of Julie and Emma. Irelands favourite two redheads explore the possibility that Madonna’s recent cat woman like features could be another publicity stunt. But as we all know (just ask Christina Aguilera) there’s always going to be someone who suffers. We look back at your favourite songs, favourite looks and the only film she was in that was half way decent, Evita.Julie makes sure to ask Fred for a baby again and Emma forgets to push record again.

37: Murders of the 90s Part Three: Susan Smith
‘Not to be judgemental but I’m going to be judgemental’This week on Up To 90, we talk more 90s murders, with Susan Smith this week. On July 22, 1995, Smith was convicted of the 1994 drowning deaths of her two sons, three-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alexander. The case both appalled and fascinated the world in equal measure as the murky circumstance surrounding the killing was gradually unveiled to the masses. The case gained international attention because of Smith's false claim that an African-Americanman had kidnapped her sons during a carjacking. The case shone a light on racial tensions in the small town community of Union, South Carolina, and also shone a light on complex relationships, sexual jealousies and harrowing family secrets. Her defense attorneys, David Bruck and Judy Clarke, called expert witnesses to testify that she suffered from mental health issues that impaired her judgment when she committed the crimes, but many questions

‘It’s just a bit too small isn’t it?’ Given the day that’s in it this week on @Upto90Ppdcast we talk King of The Elves Michael J Fox. Yes he was in a lot of 80s things but he was also in shit during the 90s so don’t even start....Spin City anyone? Stuart Little? Spokesperson for Parkinson’s? Curb Your Enthusiasm appearances? While we were drinking cans up the fields with our friends in the days before parental tracking through GPS signal was a thing he was well busy being an all round likebale fella. We chat festive family frolicks, the difficulty of housing elder lemons, the voucher curse and Emma gets into a road rage moment that will surely end in someone getting stabbed (most likely Julie, let’s face it) Happy Christmas to everyone except Eleanor who hijacked last week’s episode in a production disaster which has left an inedible mark of shame on the soul of @Upto90 If you’d like to wish us a season greeting get in touch on Twitter and Ins

35: The Murder of Tupac Shakur
This week on Up To 90 the girls get all CONSPIRACY THEORY as they talk about the unsolved killing of 90s musical icon and all-round game-changer genius Mr. Tupac Shakur. Tupac was hit with four bullets upon leaving a Mike Tyson fight at MGM alas Vegas during a drive-by shooting on September 7th 1996 and died four days later. The details surrounding the rapper's death have been a subject of endless speculation for more than 2 decades, but to date, no arrests or prosecutions have been made. Our resident fan-girl Julie gets increasingly irrational as we bob and weave down our avenues littered with betrayal, gang-related violence, mysterious phone-calls, dubious alibis, unanswered questions, conflicting accounts and theories as to what could have happened this 90s King of Men. Most importantly we ask the long-running question: is Tupac actually alive and well and if so what would motivate him to fake his own death having succeeded in rising through the upper

34: Winona Ryder
'That disposable razor? You've put it through the mill.' This week we talk our favourite Sticky Fingers - Gothic Queen of the nineties Winona Ryder. We chat elfin looks, horrendous bullying, kleptomania, Stranger Things, Little Women (seriously Jo, what an absolute melt), Beetlejuice, when baristas go bad, Reality Bites, Edward Scissorhands avec Johnny Depp and slumming it with Matt Damon. Turns out that wealth and fame don't bring you happiness after all (we want out money back from that pyramid scheme) and Winona found the whole Hollywood experience incredibly difficult and isolating - who knew the industry actually wasn't full of instant BFFS? 'Girl, Interrupted' became a personal pet project when Winona wanted to explore mental health issues in the mainstream. Acting and producing the Oscar-winning drama, Winona had come a long way from her compelling role as a rebellious teen in cult-classic Mermaids, and at the ripe

33: The Wonder Years
‘And the thing is, after all these years, I still look back in wonder’ This week on Up to 90 we talk original Irish Catholic schoolgirl crush bucket Kevin Arnold in the seminal American TV series ‘The Wonder Years’. Set against the backdrop of the late 60s/early 70s, the show chronicled the coming of age of a certain Dimples King Kevin Arnold against the backdrop of political turmoil and wider turbulence in a changing America. First airing following the 1988 Super Bowl, 'The Wonder Years' changed TV forever, dispensing with canned laughter and multiple cameras to bring ‘dramedy’ to the fore. The protagonist was not the only character to capture the hearts and minds of a generation, with subsidiary characters—from Paul Pfieffer to Jack Arnold to Winnie Cooper-proving to be equally as influential in shaping what was to be one the greatest TV shows of all time. We talk Marilyn Manson rumours, sexual harassment suits, must-watch episodes, weepers, ch-ch-c

32: Uri Geller
'Yer man who bent the spoons’ Uri Geller is most famous for his claim to be able to bend spoons and keys with his mind. An international star in the psychic circuit, Geller is a Hungarian/Austrian who was born in Israel and has claimed for many years that he's had visions and may get his powers from extraterrestrials. He calls himself a psychic and has sued several people for millions of dollars for saying otherwise. His psychic powers were not sufficient to reveal to him, however, that he would lose all the lawsuits against his critics. His arch critic has been James "The Amazing" Randi, who has written a book and numerous articles aimed at demonstrating that Geller is a fraud, that he has no psychic powers, and that what Geller does amounts to little more than some cleverly presented old-school trickery. We thrash out these Randi-Geller issues, talk media appearances and all things magic, make insanely insightful analogies and join innumer

31: Murders of the 90s Part Two: Louise Woodward
This week on Up To 90, we talk Louise Woodward – a 19-year-old British au pair who in 1997 was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of eight-month-old Matthew Eappen while he was in her care in his home in Newton, Massachusetts, in the United States.The case provoked entrenched responses on both sides as the defense argued against the prosecution’s insistence that this was a clear case of Shaken Baby Syndrome and posited that Matthew’s death was the result of older, accidental injuries.Cultural norms were called into question, working mothers were vilified, au-pair agencies were exposed as being grossly exploitative and negligent in failing to train their employees, neuropathologists came to loggerheads with emergency physicians, the British ‘stiff upper lip’ came under scrutiny and Woodward herself drew attention for her seemingly strange reactions and responses on the stand-particularly in relation to the question on which her life was to pivot: did she in fact

‘Geri's one of those ones where you're best friends for a month and they you have a big bust-up and just never speak to her again.;’This week we talk Spice Girls with the comedic genius behind ‘Fascinated’ Gearoid Farrelly. Gearoid murders our dreams by outting Geri as a psycho manipulator, shames the band for hijacking the term ‘girl-power’ for their own ends of world domination, outs the perpetual back-flipper who once treated herself to a water in a local Dublin newsagents, condemns their last album with a disdain previously reserved for when Julie when she forgets to press the record button, and offers his take on Victoria ‘aren’t all trousers parellel trousers?’ Beckham.Which Spice Girl had a solo album that Gearoid found mildly palatable? Why doesn’t Emma Bunton give up the ghost on the engagement? Did Victoria’s choice to embark on a duet with Dane Bowers mark he beginning of the end for modern music as we know it?

With over 140 episodes of Will Smith being fresh, Carlton giving out to him for being fresh and Hilary being a melt about any freshness, its easy to see why it was such a hit. But how did Will Smith get the part of Fresh Prince? What was the inspiration behind Carlton's dance? And who in God's name was Nicky? The Up to 90 team (the two wans) answer these questions and more but are still left puzzled as to why Tatyana Ali wasn’t a bigger star. Never a pair to depart away from themselves for too long, the ladies also take the opportunity to pitch their idea for a character to RTE made of their combined best body parts. But sure as anything, those dated big wigs in Montrose won’t be ready for it. Emma’s quest to obtain photographic evidence of how horrific young teen Julie was continues again this week so please get in touch to put pre

28: Jurassic Park
‘Life, uh, finds a way.’ This week on Up To 90, we talk ‘Jurassic Park’ – the film that brought CGI to the fore and gave us Jaws for a generation-but with dinosaurs. And Jeff Goldblum. In Steven Spielberg's massive blockbuster, paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and mathematician Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) are chosen to tour an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA. Despite insistences from billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) that the facility is safe, these humans find out dinosaurs are not as cuddly as they might appear when they get out following a power failure. The film was groundbreaking for its visual effects – specifically its use of CGI creatures that propelled it to break all records and become the highest-grossing movie of all time (only to be broken a few years later by a sinking ship). Was Michael Crichton ripped off selling the rights for a measly 2 million? Who

27: Favourite Ginger: Julia Roberts
‘Look, let’s cut the small talk and ask the big question: is she a real redhead?’ This week the Up To 90 team talk everyone’s favourite ginger: Julia Roberts. Having come from seemingly difficult beginnings in Georgia, Julia Roberts took both the modeling and acting worlds by storm when she landed on the New York scene as a young woman in her early twenties. Her big break came in the romantic prostitution comedy ‘Pretty Woman’, when she was cast opposite resident wreck the head Richard Gere as sex worker Viv, who loved Prince and didn’t kiss on the mouth. We discuss the scourge of ‘pranksters’ and pretending to laugh along, touch upon green apples in ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’, gloss over ‘The Pelican Brief’ and give a shout out to Julie’s mate’s family who put Ms Roberts up when she was on the run and living in sin with Kiefer Sutherland in Dingle, Co. Kerry and Julie’s been banging on about it ever since. Estranged family members, twins, those legs and gener

26: Live and Uncensored: Dublin Podcast Festival
"We can't end a comedy podcast with 'And then he died'" This week of Up To 90 is a very special episode, as we come to you live and uncensored from Liberty Hall in our Dublin Podcast Festival double-header aver the wonderful 'Dubland'. With musical intros from Fred Cooke, we invited our panel of hilarious guests in to talk everything nineties - from ninja turtles to Riverdance to all things foreign-currency, this episode took many expected twists and turns, punctuated by some serious dance moves and sing-along moments. Just why does Tralee Mc Donald's have a sign specifying only cars may avail of drive-thru service? Ronan Grace explains the notice that has baffled thousands of Happy Mealers for decades. What had the Rvierdancer troops dropping like flies immediately prior to their showstopping Eurovision performance? Pauline Shanahan fills us in.

25: Macaulay Culkin
‘Please stop injecting blood into your face’ This week on Up To 90, it’s return of The Mack as we chat Macaulay Culkin. Macaulay Culkin burst onto our cinema screens as an adorable little brother in 1989 with ‘Uncle Buck’, and from there became the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple, before retiring in the mid nineties at the grand old age of 15. We talk Home Alone and the unhappy home life which pushed Culkin into the spotlight, his relationships with Michael Jackson and Mila Kunis, whirlwind marriages and marijuana, emancipation from his parents as a teenager and his eternal quest for a normal life. If you’ve ever been married to Macaulay Culkin please contact us on Twitter and Insta @Upto90Podcast. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

23: Saved by the Bell
'I really think that's something we found really funny but the listener is going to be like what the f*ck' So we've finally given into the pleadings of our favourite Tommy Tiernan show MC Fred Cooke and allow him the honour of dieting with our wonderful Emma D in a stunning musical intro as we dissect American TV hits. This week, we talk nineties teen-com favourite: 'Saved by the Bell' Originating as Good Morning Mis Bliss, the show explored high-school social dynamics, pivoting around the hotshot protagonist Zack Morris, his buddies and the various women vying for his affections - most notably Kelly and Jessie. Good points of the show: Mario Lopez's tight black curls. Bad points: the serious episodes where they instead on conveying an important social message like 'Don't Do Drugs!' and 'Don't Study Hard! No boy will like you!' The list of thought-provoking questions are endless: Why could Dustin Diamond aka

‘He’s like a man with a fork in a world made of soup.’ This week on Up to 90 we look at the band responsible for bringing Britpop into the mainstream: the iconic supergroup: Oasis. We debate the individual strengths of Noel versus Liam and map the Twitter fall-out between our two favourite Meath/Mayo hybrids, but first we look back on how this rock and roll phenomenon came into being. Using their troubled Manchester background as divine inspiration, Deifnitely Maybe and (Whats the Story) Morning Glory? succeeded in capturing a mood that could only be paralleled with what the Kings of Grunge Nirvana were doing for disillusioned teenagers across the globe. The Gallagher brothers made it clear from the get go that they gave absolutely zero f*cks and their tempestuous sibling relationship made for some great Oasis anthems (even if it did also make for cricket bats across the head, split lips and cancelled tours). We talk Knebworth—the largest outdoor gig of its k

21: Monica Seles and The Macarena
This week we talk cringe-inducing dance moves, abandoned tennis rackets and Hamburg stabbings on Up To 90. Monica Seles was the burgeoning Queen of nineties tennis, vying with her professional rival Steffi Graf for the coveted accolades of best professional female player of her time. It was on a fateful date in Hamburg 1992 that her professional dreams came tumbling down: when she was stabbed in the neck by a disgruntled audience member in a vicious on-court attack. In a completely unrelated segway we move onto discuss the Macarena: the illicit origins of the Hispanic anthem, the wedding hip wiggling that ensued, the Junior disco moments and its importance as a coming of age soundtrack for all nineties kids. In an effort to bring some consistency to this disjointed hot mess we continue with ‘Pulling a Julie’ travails; ‘Shane Debates’ rage on as Emma and her Mister Man once again come to verbal blows. We gleefully document their crumbling relationship in this

20: Mike Tyson and The George Foreman Grill
We talk lisps, grilling at an angle, Mike Tyson, George Foreman and all things nineties fat reducing in this week's explosive episode of @Upto90Podcast.In the latest segment of 'Shane Debates', Emma and her partner come to verbal blows over multipacks: do they really taste different or should Shane just back the f*ck up? We talk 'Pulling a Julie' and murdering clutches; explain the mystery of last week’s shorter than usual episode and give shout outs to our loyal fans who accost us in the most fancy of places (generally fields and toilets).Emma makes an explosive revelation-turns out Mike Tyson is her cousin (or something?) and so how could we not indulge her fantasies and look at the man himself.Mike Tyson took the boxing world by storm in the nineties, becoming the youngest man to achieve Heavyweight champion at 20, but went on to become one of the most reviled men in sport when found guilty of rape in 1992.

17: Nineties Toys Part One: Tomagotchi & Stretch Armstrong
‘Even now whenever I smell JD and Coke I always think: Aah, Dreamphone.’ This week on Up To 90 your favorite comedy duo talk nineties toys: specifically our favourite vehicles for juvenile sadism ‘Tomagotchis’ and of course our old mate Stretch Armstrong. We peruse fan websites dedicated to having a sneaky stretch, trace the joy in feeding an egg, the protracted horror of watching a pet live out its final moments in your Backstreet Boys pencil case and go through the many faces of Stretch all over the world. As we touch upon being forced to buy your own toys and making your Dad play heavily gendered games upon his return from the pub, we have some wonderful interjections from Orla of the ‘The Cellar Comedy Club’ and comedian Darren Lalor as they #getinvolved. Have you suffered a traumatic experience associated with either of these two nineties toy classics? Have you too, suffered the indignity of being discarded in an attic for decades with only small black p

16: Talking Spice Girls with Seann Walsh and John Colleary
'Do you think it helps being so ugly doing stand-up?' This week of Up To 90 comes live (and inebriated) from Vodafone Comedy Festival 2018 in The Iveagh Gardens, Dublin, as Seann Walsh confesses to his formerly consuming Spice Girls obsession. We talk Limewire, putting your destiny in the hands of an iPod shuffle, favourite Spice Girls, moving to Brighton from London as a young 'un, doing stand-up in playgrounds and garnering quite the South London primary school following, serving seafood risotto to Supergrass lead singers, saying 'LOL' without irony and of course the perennial debate of our time: Blur versus Oasis. Listen out for a guest appearance form the KING of Irish comics John Colleary (who of course turned out to be a Spice Girls roadie...obviously) as he reminisces about England vs Ireland riots on the Kilburn Road, his preference for All Saints and even dons his glasses just so we know he means business.

15: Interview with Danny O'Reilly
‘We’ve been on your Instagram and seen your exes and it’s clear that looks aren’t important to you’ This week, we talk to the soundest rock-star in the bizz Danny O’Reilly of The Coronas about all things nineties. Recorded in the Harbourmaster in the heart of Dublin IFSC, Danny took us back to his first gig in the Catholic all-girls secondary schools Santa Maria, Joseph and the Techi-color Dreamcoat; saying goodbye to songs when they’re shite, the joy of being right, his composition of Britney Spears’ major international hit ‘Everytime’, his initial impressions of 16 year old Emma Doran (turns out she was able to chat to the lads, who would have that our resident wallflower had it in her?), getting the shift and getting star-struck, selling out the 3 Arena (thrice), why Dublin will always be home, his song-writing process, and answers the perennial question: is heartbreak really more inspiring than love? It turns out Danny is a bit of a banter factory so the

14: 90s Internet with Gordon Rochford (Those Conspiracy Guys)
‘The way you’re talking about Avatar is like me talking about my first cigarette.’ This week on Up To 90, we try our best to keep it clean (but fail miserably) with the ever-knowledgeable and entertaining Gordon Rochford, the man behind the podcast phenomenon ‘Those Conspiracy Guys’, as we talk 90s Internet. Kids today will never truly understand having to wait for your mom to get off the phone to your auntie to chat to your cyber-boyfriend in Colorado, getting cat-fished on MSN on a daily basis, and just how coveted the role of ‘computer steward’ really was. What does AOL really stand for? Did chat-rooms pave the way for social media? Why was Gordo an inside child? Which country can really claim to have invented the Internet? All these questions are answered in this hugely hilarious latest episode of Up To 90. (Gordo also does an absolute killer dial-up Internet impression which is not to be missed).Look us up on Twitter and Insta @upto90podcast and o

13: Murders of the 90s: Part One
'It was that awful, awful woman that did it, don't blame me!' - The House This week, Up To 90 sees our favourite comedy duo dip into the murky waters of true crime, as we look at infamous murders of the 90s: The Menandez brothers of Beverly Hills who shot and killed their parents and The Black Widow of Sacramento, Dorothea Puente. To all intents and purposes the Menandez brothers epitomised the American dream: a fancy house, impressive vacations, nice cars and professional excess. Against the backdrop of a seemingly successful, well-to-do family, the violence of the murders rocked not only Hollywood but the world, especially as the brothers accused their parents of years of sexual and psychological abuse. It was the way in which the televised trial garnered so much media attention, specifically the wall-to-wall coverage that paved the way for other televised trials (most notably that of OJ Simpson). Dorothea Puente was your typical boarding-house

We look at The Nutty Professor being a ‘Good Samaritan’ by kindly offering a transsexual sex worker a ride home and how Divine Brown succeeded in building an industry out of Hugh Grant’s ‘bad thing’. We talk playing the perpetual ‘I forgot my wallet’ card, Liz Hurley and THAT dress, numeric tattoos, bad decision-making, tea with the queen and ‘the existence of other children’.
