In each episode, Turtle Bunbury discusses life and its learnings with Ireland’s elders, recording their voices of courage, humour and wisdom for future generations.

The Maxol Story

Founded in 1920, the family-owned Maxol Group is one of the biggest energy providers in Ireland. In this podcast series, historian Turtle Bunbury charts a story of ingenuity, adversity and fortitude from the earliest years of the McMullan family through global wars, oil crises and economic hardship to the present-day challenges of climate change, Covid 19 and technological advance.

Unexpected Irish Tales

Turtle shares stories from his book Ireland’s Forgotten Past – a collection of overlooked and ‘disremembered’ moments in the history of Ireland, from raging storms and the Knights Templar to Dublin’s Viking kings.

The Voice of Benevolence

Turtle teams up with Chief Gary Batton of the Choctaw Nation and the American history podcast BackStory to tell a remarkable tale from the Great Hunger, when the Choctaw people sent $170 to Ireland to help alleviate the distress at the height of the potato blight.

The Irish Diaspora

Turtle shares stories from his 2021 book ‘The Irish Diaspora: Tales of Emigration, Exile and Imperialism’, which charts Irish influence on global history, from Christian missionaries in Europe in the early Middle Ages to the presidency of the United States.
