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....

In an appendix to Episode 12, the lads sit down with a close friend of the show to enjoy his fascinating story of first-hand reincarnation. Listen as the idea of reincarnation...
