Miriam Meets...

This week, Miriam O'Callaghan meets RTE rugby pundits George Hook and Brent Pope.

The men describe for Miriam the preparations that they make on the day of a big broadcast and how their broadcast styles are different.

They have known each other many years, but they are not close personal friends. That said, George is happy to offer Brent on-air advice about life and love. 

Both men have experienced depression in their lives.  They describe their particular experiences.  Brent explains to Miriam that he is currently involved in a suicide awareness campaign -www.cycleagainstsuicide.com

Their music choices were American Patrol by Glen Miller; He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother by The Hollies and The Breath You Take by George Strait.
