Egg Money Review
Finally, returning home, Egg Money (Newstalk, Sun, 7am) was the latest piece by a woman who is, for my money, the finest radio documentarian working in Ireland today, Patricia Baker. She turns ’em out at a ferocious rate but the quality just doesn’t drop.
This one, like all of Baker’s documentaries, was clever, curious, thoughtful and very charming, as she heard the stories of elderly rural women who had basically kept the country going for decades. Egg Money rescued them from the ‘Irish Mammy’ stereotype and paid generous homage to a pretty remarkable generation of women.
