Who are Podge & Rodge?

What a silly question — you stupid lot! RTÉ have been running A Scare at Bedtime for bleedin years and yers gobshites are trying to plead ignorance, huh?!?

Ok, ok. Admittedly the Internet is a "global medium". So if you're not in Ireland (or if you're in Ireland but have been living under a rock for years), here's an induction:

Wikipedia has this to say about Podge & Rodge [slightly edited]:

"Podge and Rodge are the two characters from A Scare at Bedtime, an Irish adult comedy televised puppet show.
The duo's increasingly regular use of profane language and sexual innuendo made them unsuitable for a children's television show (The Den), so they were moved to a close to midnight slot, in the programme A Scare at Bedtime. This show took its name from a previous RTÉ show called A Prayer at Bedtime, which overlaid the text of a Roman Catholic prayer over serene images with choral music playing. A Scare at Bedtime is close to being the polar opposite of this, with extremely adult content, lewd jokes and slightly obscene anecdotes being related by the two puppets."
