Kiri Pritchard-McLean - Y Draenog Poced (Part 1)

Wales is steeped in history; especially when it comes to pubs. For example, did you know that Owain Glyndŵr would require all of his soldiers to drink a pint of Brains in unison before every battle? And that Shirley Bassey once argued that her most famous ballad should have been called “Ales Are Forever”? Yes, Wales and pubs go hand in hand… and this week’s guest knows all about that. It’s comedian, writer and one of the ultimate pubbers Cymru has ever produced: Kiri Pritchard-McLean!

Kiri resides on the island of Anglesey, where (because of its road network) journeys to the pub are more of a day out than a quick jaunt. But that hasn’t stopped her from sampling publy delights up and down the country. She’s also spent plenty of time working behind bars over the years, giving her a rare look behind the magicians cloth to see the inner workings of pub.
