Len Lipitch the Londoner, Honk the donkey and a very special love story

7/1/2024
On today’s podcast I chatted with Londoner, Len Lipitch who celebrates 50 years living in Ireland this year. He started off as an accountant and working on one of the first “Flower Power” festivals changed his career trajectory. Len worked providing visuals to touring bands, he worked in a number of different countries and then he came to Ireland for a simpler life. He came to West Cork, bought a cottage for £1,000 and ended up living without water or electricity with a donkey called Honk, who was his only mode of transport for two years! Many years later after some twists and turns a Tarot Card reader told him that his life was about to change, and days later he picked up a young German hitchhiker, Sabine Lenz, which was the beginning of a very special love story and a successful jewellery business, Enibas.

Paul Niland of Lifeline Ukraine - Two Years of a Brutal War

2/22/2024
As we approach the two year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, I welcome back the journalist and founder of Lifeline Ukraine, Paul Niland to the Win Happy podcast. Make no mistake, this is a brutal war with endless, pointless suffering and Paul, an Irishman who has been living in Kyiv for 21 years, tells us the story of the last two decades and how he sees things going right now. Ukraine needs all of the help that it can get to defeat Putin and in the meantime we need to support all of the Ukranians who are living in Ireland and elsewhere, during their ongoing nightmare. While things are beyond tough, Paul says the Ukrainian spirit is strong and it will prevail and they will be celebrating a victory against Putin’s Russia one day. I hope you enjoy the show.

Gwendolyn Masin- Concert Violinist, Educator, Creator and Entrepreneur

2/16/2024
On today’s podcast I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Gwendolyn Masin, concert violinist, educator and director of the GAIA Music Festival in Switzerland. She is the fourth generation of family musicians, she started playing piano at the age of three, she was given a violin for her fifth birthday and at the age of six she performed in her first concert. Gwendolyn has lived all over the world, she works tirelessly seven days a week, and to perform at this level she must work as hard on her fitness as she does on her craft. Not only did I learn about the amount of pain that musicians such as Gwendolyn have to endure for their craft, but I also learnt that she is as much a talented creator and entrepreneur as she is a musician.
