Episode notes

Derry Girls writer and creator Lisa McGee joins the Girls and tells them why she is "obsessed" with the podcast. She describes it as "hilarious", "THE best thing" and explains why she "was annoyed that she (sic) hadn't heard it before writing Series 3". Lisa also has some suggestions about what Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise can cover in the podcast while we wait impatiently for Series 3. 2020 ZeBBie Awards - ‘Our Lisa’s been nominated’ (I feel we can say that now! )  http://www.iftn.ie/news/?act1=record&only=1&aid=73&rid=4293665&tpl=archnews&force=1 Caroline Leddy - Producer Derry Girls https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0496418/ Caroline Leddy’s husband’s uncle - Brian Friel http://www.irishplayography.com/person.aspx?personid=31919 Liz Lewin - Exec Producer Derry Girls https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1157598/ Freaks and Geeks - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freaks_and_Geeks Queer as Folk - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0262985/ Russell T Davies - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0203961/ Larry David - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0202970/ OK, this Derry Girl was actually in the audience at the Stephen Colbert show on 9th January 2020 when Larry David was the guest - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cIzyYGnmSY The Undertones - http://theundertones.com/_/Home.html Erin’s Diary - https://www.independent.ie/videos/derry-girls-star-saoirse-monica-jackson-reads-extract-from-new-spin-off-book-erins-diary-written-by-lisa-mcgee-39407478.html For more information about the podcast, visit: www.thebiglight.com/talkingderrygirls Keep up to date with us on Twitter: @TBLderrygirls Check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/talkingderrygirls WATCH Derry Girls on Channel 4: https://www.channel4.com On RTE (in Ireland): https://www.rte.ie/ Series 1 & 2 available on Netflix outside UK: https://www.whats-on-netflix.com/news/derry-girls-season-2-coming-to-netflix-in-august-2019/
