026: Birds of a Feather | Ann O'Dea and Silicon Republic

Ann O'Dea from Silicon Republic joins us on the show to talk about journalism, inspiring people....and bird-watching!

Since going online in 2001, has gone from being Ireland’s No 1 resource for technology news, with countless awards to its name, to one of the leading online publications in Europe with over half-a-million pageviews each month and growing. We have become the ‘go to’ destination for those seeking to be informed on all things tech and innovation in Ireland, Europe and further afield.

Our award-winning team of journalists have always chronicled the technology landscape in Ireland and abroad diligently as it grew apace and, today, thousands of readers from Ireland, Europe, Silicon Valley and the rest of the world come to every day to stay informed on vital issues impacting STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths).

Be it the latest gadgets, hottest start-ups, cutting-edge scientific research or the tech trends shaping the world – you’ll find it here on We cover entrepreneurs, academia, infosec, IT strategy, consumer tech, online trends, space exploration, comms, earth sciences, renewable energy, the internet of things and all things STEM because this is what we love to do.

As well as news and video reports on the shifting technology landscape, we also provide our audience with information on jobs and careers in STEM. We are long-time champions of diversity in STEM with initiatives like our Women Invent campaign and Inspirefest 2015, our major international sci-tech event with over 70pc women leaders on-stage.

When we began, the internet was a desktop experience, Facebook didn’t exist and Google had only embarked on its commercial model. Today, we are in a world where more than 2bn people are online and the majority of their browsing is set to take place on mobile devices.

The revolution began in 2001. Stick with as we guide you through the choppy waters of change and the incredible years ahead in what is truly the century of innovation, collaboration and communication.

If it happens, you will find it on, keeping you up-to-date with the fast-moving and ever changing world of technology, business, science, innovation and new thinking.
