CPI - Clare People Interactive



In late 2006, Clare People Interactive (CPI) became the first Irish blog connected to a newspaper to publish extended podcast interview to accompany article which appeared each week in print. Over the following four year or so I recorded and edited well over 100 podcast interview - mostly with Irish and international musicians and authors.
When I wound down the project in 2010 I had accumulated nearly two days worth of audio podcasts, not to mention a handful of video podcasts, scores of online album reviews and hosted Ireland's (and maybe the world's) first (and perhaps only) podcast festival, aka Podfest 2007.
CPI was shortlisted for a Golden Spider Award on three separate occasions (twice in conjunction with the main Clare People website and once in its own right), was short listed for a Digital Media Award and was even nominated for two radio awards (go figure).
This blog is a growing archive of the now defunct CPI site. I am slowly (painstakingly slowly) uploading all these podcast interview to various audio clouds and linking them all here - usually also including the text which featured in the original article.
This is slow going. Any of the interviews listed below with active links (that's the blue ones) can be listened to right now for free. The rest will come in time. If you spot a particular interview that you are dying to listen to, please drop me an line to andyhamiltonspuds@gmail.com and I'll see what I can figure out. Also, if you spot any broken links, or anything that is not as it should be, please do let me know.  

Thanks, enjoy the podcasts and please forgive the occasionally dodgy sound quality,
Cheers,
Andy
