Mara Hunter

Oldest Podcast Guest of all Time Appears on Soul Brew Podcast

Press Release · Donegal, Ireland ·

Soul Brew Podcast hosts Stephen and Aidan believe that their latest guest may be the oldest ever podcaster. Aidan’s grandmother Mara Hunter, born in 1930 stars in the latest episode of Soul Brew “Reeling in the Years”. Aidan goes through the decades with Mara discussing life in Ireland through World War II, the troubles in the north, and living without electricity until after she was married.

Mara, who lives in rural Donegal and has done her whole life speaks about how she had no shoes during childhood, and how everyone worked long physical hours believing people may have been healthier back in the day and is glad she was brought up in that era. This podcast gives a fascinating insight into life in Ireland through the years and if Mara could get on social media we are sure she would have many fans after this wonderful listen.

The aim of the show is to create a community that can share thoughts, ideas, love, compassion, positivity, and realism in a safe non-judgemental environment. Aidan and Stephen want to do this while promoting discussions about the meaning and purpose of life, mental health, physical health, and topics such as happiness, stoicism, social media, and milestones of life e.g., college.
