Who am I?
My name is Eamon O'Flynn and for 35 years I thought I was as Irish as they come. But then I did a DNA test and found out I was actually 63 Percent Scottish. This was an eye-opener!
I love talking to people and learning new things, and I am especially fascinated with history, heritage and ancestry. While it seems ludicrous that I'd be so ignorant of my Scottish heritage for so long, I'm not a total dummy - I have a degree in history (and another in political science!).
Put this all together and it's pretty obvious why I created the 63 Percent Scottish podcast.
