21: #20 | 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...


20: #19 | 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...

‘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.

16: #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’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...


14: #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...

'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...


12: #12 | Interview with Pamela Flood

This week on Up To 90, we talk to former Miss Ireland Pamela Flood about everything from ‘getting the wear’ to competing in Miss World; from being an eco warrior to laying your cards on the table with men; from the soundness of Charlene Spitari to the many cups of tea that were drunk while continuity announcing in RTE, from ‘Off The Rails’ to the scourge of online trolls; from being an older mother to what Miss Jamaica was really like. Most tantalizingly of all we find out how she ended up...


11: #11 | Paying for Sex: Hugh Grant and Eddie Murphy

‘I did a bad thing and there you have it’ This week’s episode focuses on two men who got caught ‘paying for sex’ in the nineties: Hugh Grant and Eddie Murphy. 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...


10: #10 | Sex Tapes and Tommy Lees

‘He was wearing a dog suit’ This week on Up to 90 we discuss the holiday vid Pamela Anderson and her bad boy husband Tommy Lee didn’t want you to see and why you should never piss a tradesman off. We ruminate on the original ‘personal footage’ invasion and why you should never repeatedly marry the same person, no matter how rad his gothic bangs are. We also look at another Tommy Lee-this time it’s the King of Texas/Men in Black and do some ON POINT impersonations of the role which saw him...


9: #9 | Extra-Marital Affairs

**‘There were three of us in this marriage so it was a bit crowded.’** This week, we look at extra-marital affairs, with former Hollywood Star Arnold Schwarzenegger doing the naughty with his nanny whilst Prince Charles couldn’t shake that Camilla feeling. Princess Diana, Maria Shriver, love children, tampons, Irish bishops, screentime and Austrian accents abound in this saucy episode of Up to 90\. If you feel Emma and Julie have plummeted to a new moral nadir with this adultery special...


8: #8 | Paul McGrath Interview

This week the girls chat to football legend Paul Mc Grath. ‘You’re on the pitch playing football, where’s your wallet?’ As we’ve learned in previous episodes, the fact that the girls know nothing about football isn’t going to stop them from talking about football. This week, the girls interrogate the delightful Oooh Aaaah Paul Mc Grath. This happy trio talks nudist beaches, World Cup breakfasts (how’d you like your eggs?), Apres March, favourite popes, Michael Jackson songs and Vanilla Ice....


7: #7 | The Commitments & The Snapper

This week on Up To 90, Emma and Julie talk Rabbits and Curleys as they look back on Roddy Doyle’s seminal films The Commitments and The Snapper. Emma identified with the latter so much, she actually went off and got pregnant in the summer of fifth year. It was all in a bid to earn the coveted title of ‘Roddy Doyle’s number one fan.’ Meanwhile, the penny finally drops with Julie as to what the point of the podcast is. We see Colm Meaney as the Father of Ireland, Andrea Corr is a disconcerting...


6: #6 | Boris Yeltsin and Mary Robinson

‘My auntie used to say anyone inebriated was ‘circling over Shannon’ In this episode, Julie looks at Russia’s infamously pickled former President Boris Yeltsin causing a scene and invading sovereign countries (the usual drunken behaviour) while Emma looks at former UN Commissioner for Human Rights and first female President of Ireland Mary Robinson. Conspiracy theories, alcoholism, ground-breakingly progressive law making, contraception, being found drunk in your underpants and candles in...


5: #5 | MTV Select

‘Sorry Christina but there’s a fine line between fake tanning and blacking up’. MTV Select: the Snapchat of a generation In this week’s episode, Emma and Julie look back at when using the landline to get on the telly in a bid to request your favourite vid was an after-school life mission and a golden time when collective Irish egos were massaged by June Sarpong’s inability to pronounce our names. Your favourite ginger duo discuss the vulgarity of ‘having the channels’, going on the hop when...


4: #4 | Post Session Moths: Pet Cemetery

In this week’s special episode of Up To 90, Emma and Julie chat about pets – the good, the bad and the ugly (aka death).

If you want to share your pet stories with us, we're @UpTo90 on Insta and Twitter.


3: #3 | Eric Cantona and David Beckham

‘Ten brave lions and one stupid little boy’ In this episode, the girls talk infamous kicks of the nineties, Eric Cantona of Manchester United and a young England player called David Beckham at the 1998 World Cup. We remember Eric’s Kung-fu assault in the jugular against a fan who made the King of the Reds see, well, red - and of course David Beckham’s foul against an Argentina’s Diego Simeone which saw England’s World Cup hopes dashed and made him Britain’s most hated man. If you want to...


2: #2 | Alternative Royal Weddings

For the week that’s in it, Emma and Julie look back at two alternative Royal Weddings from the 90s: When the King of Pop Michael Jackson got hitched to the Princess of Rock Lisa-Marie Presley (Bubbles was unwilling to commit) and when Victoria ‘I’m Posh innit’ Adams bagged her Goldenballs David Beckham in Luttrellstown Castle. Julie offers marriage advice based on her having the shift at the weekend and Emma outs Gary Neville as the Bestman from Hell. For feedback and contributions make sure...
