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!

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.

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.

Men Behaving Better: Episode 1

13Jul

This week, Irishman Abroad Podcasts is proud to deliver to you the inaugural episode of our new podcast series Men Behaving Better. It's a new collection of conversations that nobody else is having. This is a podcast for men who want to change and for women who believe that change is possible.

In front of a packed Soho Theatre in London, Jarlath was joined by comedian’s Pierre Novelli and Fern Brady, and the celebrated human rights lawyer Simone George for the first pathfinding episode of the series. This conversation explores how Fern’s former work as a stripper opened her eyes to the truth behind the power dynamics between men and women (7:00) and the importance of men simply listening (14:00).

From the challenges facing modern men (26:00) to the shocking moment when Simone revealed how she was sexually assaulted inside the high court (32:00), to male fatigue surrounding feminism (49:00) and much more, this conversation is a truly gripping and entertaining way to open the doors to the new series and new kind of conversation about changing men for the better.
