Everyone has heard of the patron saint Patrick who chased menacing, reptilian beasts out of Ireland and into the sea. But few have heard of the not-even-close-to-patron saint, but all-around-awesome Irish beer-reviewer, Oisin. On today's show, to celebrate St. Paddy's Day Oisin graces us with some Irish folklore and sets up a difficult to pronounce Irish name game for us to botch. How exactly is Oisin pronounced? How about Caoimhe? Niamh? They're not how you're thinking that's for sure. Pour yourself a green pint and join us for some laughs as we get an early start on the biggest drinking holiday in America.

Our daring, our brave, our nonsensical correspondent in the field is a man of mystery, exploring the depths of this planet most can only dream of. But behind his rugged, adventurous shell is a caring family man, uncle to an adoring niece, and philanthropist to all. But who is he really? Where did he come from? And why do the podcast hosts insist on sending him to his almost-certain-death on every show? Take a journey with us as we pay homage to our very own, Sir Matthew.
