John Duddy and Tim Wheeler (Live from NYC): Episode 269

10Nov

This week Jarlath is joined live in front of a packed Stella and Fly venue in the heart of New York City by boxer-turned-actor John Duddy and Ash frontman and award-winning songwriter Tim Wheeler for an hour of chat.

Tim explains how it feels to have thousands of audience members in the palm of your hand (22:00), how he once lost a tooth on stage (15:00) and how little he trusts himself due to his addictive personality (11:00).

John tells the story of his fortuitous move into acting (50:00), the fight that he was worried most about winning (41:00) and New York’s appeal to immigrants (17:00).

From the seldom-spoken about video involving Tim, a dominatrix and some talcum powder (8:00) to the industry norm of giving cocaine to journalists (36:00), why John was never afraid to enter the ring (40:00) and Ash’s strange Co. Louth online troller (49:00), this is one of the true highlights of Irishman Abroad’s live episodes in the series to date.

Nial Conlan: Episode 266

22Oct

Níal Conlan is the bassist for Delorentos and is one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the music industry and a long-time friend of Jarlath.

In this incredible conversation, Níal explains how Delorentos were almost forced to sign a record contract in shady circumstances (21:00), the massive error that cost the band (27:00) and how sharing his time between London and Dublin has resulted in him feeling as though he doesn't have a place to call home (38:00).

From the incredible stories of running pop-up record shops out of a camper van to release Little Sparks (34:00) and how they binned all but one song off their latest album that they recorded in Spain (57:00) to the constant hustle as an independent band (59:00) and how he can't afford to move home to Ireland (Patreon extended cut only), this is a truly insightful chat with a true ambassador for Irish independent art.

Paul Dunne: Episode 263

28Sep

This week Paul Dunne sat down with Jarlath where it all began for him in Greystones Golf Club to speak about his fascinating journey as he prepares to defend his British Masters title in the coming weeks.

Paul explains the challenging nature of golf, which is a 'game of feels' (15:00), his realisation that reputation is nothing and performance is everything (29:00) and how a slow leaderboard update seriously let him down in 2017 (34:00).

From discussing his struggle to control his anger (1:05:00) to why he is glad that he is not Tiger Woods (Patreon extended cut only), no punches are pulled. Paul opens up for the first time about how his devastating loss at St. Andrews in 2015 both helped and hindered him (45:00) and much, much more. This is a thoroughly enjoyable conversation from start to finish with Ireland's fastest rising golfing talent on the world stage. (There’s even a chance to win a round of golf at Walton Heath for you and 3 friends in our competition! Listen to find out how to enter and win.)
