This weeks episode finds us in conversation with Eddie McGonnell, County Grand Master for Glasgow. We have had a lot of requests over the previous 4 seasons to feature the Orange Order and get their perspective on parades and what motivates them to be part of the Orange Institution.

Eddie has a long history with the Order and takes pride in the work they do for their local communities and the sense of belonging and discipline it has brought to his life. Eddie talks about how he got involved, what keeps him involved and some of the most memorable moments he has had over the years.

On Made to Parade we always say "understanding is better than knowledge" and this episode hopefully goes a long way to humanise members of the Orange Order and show the person who wears the collarette and not the stereotype the media likes to portray.

Thank you to everyone who has been tuning in since we made the switch to video podcasts, the support has definitely increased and we appreciate the time you spend watching and listening to Made to Parade.

As always thanks to our Patrons who contribute to the channel each month and our sponsors British Drum Co for their continued support.

Audio versions of the podcast are available on our website www.madetoparade.com as well as all podcast platforms.
