This week on Alive and Kicking Clare McKenna - When the pandemic struck, Irish cellist Gerald Peregrine, found himself without concerts or touring and so decided to gather together some friends and colleagues to bring music to the gardens of hospitals and nursing homes around the country. He shares some of his incredible stories about the impact his music had on patients, residents and staff alike.

With reports that egg freezing has gone up by 60% in the pandemic and that sperm count will be halved by 2045, what do we really need to know about our fertility and how worried should we be? Dr Hans Arce joined Clare to open the conversation, allay some fears, and empower with information.

In 2009, the whole country was invested in the story of conjoined twins, Hassan and Hussein Benhaffaf. Clare speaks to their mum Angie, about how life has been for the whole family and just how far the twins have come in the time since we last saw them.
