Meet Your Maker
Liam Geraghty hosts Meet Your Maker – a podcast about the people who make the things we love. Each week will see compelling, narrative stories about the makers, creators and composers of the cultural landscape.
The debut episode asks what happens when you remove the star of the show from the show? Dan Walsh tells the story of how he chopped Garfield out of Garfield, gained millions of fans and attracted the attention of the one person he didn’t want to find out about what he’d done: Garfield creator, Jim Davis.
Meet Your Maker host Liam Geraghty is no stranger to podcasting. In 2008 he created The Comic Cast, a podcast that would go on to win the award for Best Independent Podcast at the Irish Web Awards twice over its six-year run and was archived by the National Library of Ireland for its "cultural significance".
Liam's podcasting work led him to become a reporter for RTÉ Radio, where he is the regular reporter for The Business with Richard Curran, currently in Ireland's top 10 most-listened-to radio shows, with audiences regularly exceeding 300,000.
In 2015, Liam was taught by a team of veteran storytellers from This American Life, Gimlet Media, ProPublica andWNYC when he was selected by the Association of Independents in Radio as one of 14 radio producers to take part in Full Spectrum, a week-long creative workshop in Brooklyn, New York, led by award-winning documentarian Kara Oehler.
Meet Your Maker launched today (July 31st) and is available to subscribe to now on iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts.
