Gordon Rochford: Episode 262

21Sep

With his award winning podcast Those Conspiracy Guys, Gordon Rochford may be no stranger to many of our listeners but this week, for the first time, Gordon tells the incredible story of how he went from going off the rails to being on the verge of selling a massive documentary series to Netflix.

Gordon speaks frankly about the truth behind the shocking world of YouTube censorship (24:00), the frightening places that his 'recreational alcoholism' took him (44:00) before speaking for the first time about why Those Conspiracy Guys has lost two of it's partners over the years (Patreon extended cut only).
 
From his exciting dreams to make millions of dollars through Netflix (1:09:00) to questioning whether millennials are right or too sensitive (28:00), this is a truly gripping conversation with one of the hardest working guys in media.

Jack Conroy: Episode 261

14Sep

Jack Conroy is the goalkeeper for the Irish International Amputee Football team. At the start of the month he joined Jarlath to tell his own story and talk about the lengths to which he and his teammates have gone to raise enough funds to compete in major tournaments.

Jack recalls the surprise encounter at a bus stop that changed his entire life (21:00), how Roy Keane advised him to not do what he did at the World Cup (38:00) while also detailing the mindset needed to play in goal (45:00).
 
From his sobering thoughts on being proud of who you are (14:00) to how under-funded the Irish International Amputee Football Association is (29:00), this is a thoroughly inspiring conversation with a true gentleman of Irish sport.

Grainne Parker and Dominic Munnelly: Episode 259

31Aug

Jarlath meets nutritionist Grainne Parker and her husband the game changing trainer and coach Dominic Munnelly to discuss his own personal struggle to get healthy. Grainne and Dominic have changed the conversation about fitness and well-being in Ireland and try to do the same for Jarlath. They open up about how tragedy brought them together and fatigue with the industry drove them to create their new book ‘Move, Train Nourish.’

The book has become a best-seller and helped thousands of people to reject the old understanding of health and fitness in favour of a more rounded view. From overcoming negative self-talk to why we’re unhealthier than ever and how emotional wellbeing should be a vital part of personal training, this episode is a must-listen for anyone who has ever struggled with their own relationship with their body, relationships and healthy living. For more information on the book, Dominic and Grainne just go to dominicmunnelly.ie.

Terry McMahon: Episode 258

24Aug

This week, one of Ireland's most outspoken voices, Terry McMahon, speaks about his life and work as an award-winning writer/director/actor and activist.

With incredible honesty, Terry opens up about his failed suicide attempts and his experience of being homeless (4:00), being on the receiving end on an RTÉ executive's abuse of power (22:00) and why he never understood the success of Fair City, despite it giving him life-changing earnings (15:00).

From why he believe's his film Charlie Casanova would have not received the negative response that it did if it were written by Lenny Abrahamson or Neil Jordan (29:00) to his plans to take over the GPO at the time of the Apollo House occupation (53:00) and the sheer level of chancing his arm that led to him working with Daryl Hanna (11:00), this interview is one of the most compelling conversations of the series to date.

Rory Scovel and Seann Walsh (Live): Episode 257

17Aug

This week Jarlath is joined live on stage at the Vodafone Comedy Festival in Dublin by his friends and comedians Rory Scovel and Seann Walsh for what is maybe the funniest live episode in the series to date.

Rory explains how, while filming the blockbuster movie ‘I Feel Pretty’, Amy Schumer told him she would fire him if his performance was not up to scratch (5:00) and why he genuinely believes that he can be the US President some day (38:00).

Seann tells the oddly hilarious story of the panic attack he suffered live on stage (22:00), why he was once sacked from TK Maxx (29:00) and how he started out performing comedy in the playground (15:00).

Jarlath quizzes Rory on his ridiculous attempts to complete standup challenges (21:00) and Seann gets into why people shouldn’t have been trusted to vote in Brexit (43:00). This is an absolute treat of an episode and one you could have been at if you were a Patreon subscriber!

Bronagh Waugh: Episode 256

12Aug

This week, actor and activist Bronagh Waugh joined Jarlath for a discussion about her struggle, success, belief and perseverance.

Jarlath challenges Bronagh on the belief that the BBC are protecting vested interests (37:00) and they discuss her images issues that came about as a result of appearing on Hollyoaks (47:00).

Tom Dunne (returns): Episode 255

3Aug

Tom Dunne is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved voices in Irish broadcasting. Having made his first appearance on Irishman Abroad almost 5 years ago, Tom sat down with Jarlath this week to have the much-anticipated follow-up conversation to their ridiculously entertaining first meeting.

Tom opens up about his most humiliating experiences with Something Happens (3:00), his differences with Dave Fanning (43:00) and his struggle to retain the optimism for which he is so well known (1:07:00). 

From his soul-destroying interview with Simply Red (30:00) to why it felt right to leave Today FM (58:00) and his strange yet wonderful first chat with Paul McCartney (36:00) and much more. This return episode of the broadcasting legend is truly well worth the wait.

Ibrahim Halawa: Episode 254

27Jul

Ibrahim Halawa went into an Egyptian prison as a child and, 4 years later, he was released as an innocent man who would never get back those formative years of his life. Upon his much-anticipated release, instead of enjoying his freedom, Ibrahim battled with racism and scepticism from the Irish public.
 
This week, Ibrahim gives the most open and honest interview of his life. In incredible detail, Ibrahim explains how he wasn’t mentally stable during the first few interviews that he did upon his release (14:00) and the ridiculous circumstances of the night of his arrest (21:00) and much, much more. This is one of the most enthralling interviews of the series to date.

Holly McGlynn: Episode 253

20Jul

This week, fashion photographer Holly McGlynn, spoke to Jarlath about her incredible journey of hard graft and commitment that has seen her win international recognition and work with some of the biggest brands in the world.

From the ballsy move that resulted in an international commission from Levis (35:00), to the value of saying ‘yes’ to everything (32:00) and never giving up (1:08:00), this is a fantastic conversation with one of Ireland’s fastest rising talents on the world stage.
