The Odd Couple: Why France & America Always Fall Out (And The Truth About The Ghost Of Hugo Chavez & Dominion Is Out) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

September 24, 2021
If you haven’t been keeping up this week Marion is here to give you all the latest from the Love Island relationship of America and France. We learn about their many strops of the past and how Biden might be forced to leave the Villa to get flowers and chocolates for Emmanuel. Apologies are off the menu when it comes to Rudi Giuliani and the lawyers who accused Dominion, the makers of the US voting machines of colluding with everyone from the ghost of Hugo Chavez to German hackers in order to steal the election from the Orange Man. Marion looks at their insanity defence while Jarlath wonders if it’s just crazy enough to work. There’s also news on a brilliant feature guest this Sunday you will not want to miss.

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”So Your Race Day Is Almost Here: Sonia‘s Preparation Masterclass”

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”So Your Race Day Is Almost Here: Sonia‘s Preparation Masterclass”

September 21, 2021
Sonia’s international athletics season finished on a high last Friday and before she breaks down everything you need to know about race day prep, she fills us in on a record breaking night for her German athlete Konstanze "Koko" Klosterhalfen. Sonia immediately returned to Cobh and has a chance to rest the only way she knows how, with a bit of active recovery cross training. Jarlath’s own attempts at mixing up his activity left him “in ribbons” and wondering is basketball the worst of all cross training activities. We get the opinion of the Irish athletics icon on why the bike is best, especially if there is a coffee or toasted cheese sandwich destination thrown into the mix. Then it’s on to Sonia’s race day preparation masterclass. We are making this episode available in full to all the listeners to give you a taste of how extensive and enjoyable full episodes are over on Patreon.

The Jenny Greene Episode

The Jenny Greene Episode

September 18, 2021

The beloved DJ Jenny Greene joins Jarlath for a wide-ranging discussion of her journey from a kid too sick to sit her state exams to filling arenas with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Plagued for years with a chronic cough, Jenny had no choice but to go on a course of aggressive steroids and miss crucial months and years in school. The story of how she found solace in music while sipping from a converted nebuliser and deciding to not sit the Leaving Certificate has to be heard to be believed. Later in the chat Jenny opens up for the first time about her personal and professional journeys including her choice to leave RTÉ and how she met her wife at 14 years old while attending the Gaeltacht. There’s news on a potential new musical project, an inside look at how to convert dancefloor bangers into orchestral pieces, why she thinks she has never experienced homophobia face to face in Ireland and a whole lot more. Irishman Abroad is completely crowdfunded by our listeners. We would like to thank everyone who has signed up at Patreon.com/irishmanabroad. Without these people we would not be here. If you like what we do and want to see it continue, why not sign up this week. We are offering a 15% discount to all new signups this month.

How The FBI Failed The Victims Of Larry Nassar (The California Recall, Is Time Up For Trump & Civilians In Space) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

How The FBI Failed The Victims Of Larry Nassar (The California Recall, Is Time Up For Trump & Civilians In Space) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

September 17, 2021
This week our US correspondent Marion McKeone takes us inside the emotional Senate Judiciary Committee hearings where gymnasts abused by Larry Nasser detailed the horrendous treatment they suffered at the hands of the FBI. The anger at the Department Of Justice’s failure to attend the hearings, the agents who failed to act on the information they obtained and the shocking mishandling of crucial evidence are just some of the details that come under the microscope. Later Marion looks at the re-election of Gavin Newsome, E Jean Carroll’s breakthrough and what that means for Donald Trump. And finally SpaceX put civilians in space this week so Marion reminds us why she will be first in the queue when the space bus arrives for the rest of us. Jarlath recommends two books for those listening who are gluttons for punishment and there’s a reminder of our running event this Saturday in aid of the Ireland Funds.

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”What‘s Missing From Your Running Routine?: With Special Guest Niall Breslin”

September 14, 2021
Sonia gives Jarlath the raw and unfiltered truth on what most runners leave out from their running routine and why even the elite athlete rolls the dice not knowing exactly how much damage this can do. Currently travelling to the stadiums she used to dominate, Sonia explains to Jar how different it feels to be the coach this time around. We asked the club members for their running hacks and you're going to love some of the wild answers we received. "Directions Gate" rumbles on as Jarlath gets support from the heartless Michelle Guiney! There's even a chat with the ultra-sound Niall Breslin just 24 hours after he completed a ridiculous ultra marathon in aid of his charity Lust For Life. This huge episode is jam packed and only available in full via Patreon.com/irishmanabroad

The Jade Jordan Episode

The Jade Jordan Episode

September 11, 2021

Actress and writer Jade Jordan sits down with Jarlath to discuss the inspiration behind her stunning new book “Nanny, Ma & Me”. Learning to cope with racism, discrimination and abuse is hard enough but a large portion of the population deny it’s very existence, that is something else entirely. Jade explains how the institutional racism the past three generations of her family have faced might have to get worse before it gets better. The presumption that each generation is more tolerant than the last is examined while we hear raw and heartbreaking audio from Jade's interviews with her mother. The final part of the episode is devoted to Jade’s own story and how her time at drama school crippled her confidence but also showed her how not to teach drama at her own school today. The book Nanny, Ma & Me is out now: https://www.bookstation.ie/product/nanny-ma-and-me-an-irish-story-of-family-race-and-home/

9/11 Twenty Years On (Marion Looks Back To Her Day At Ground Zero) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

September 10, 2021

Marion McKeone was right there when the World Trade Centre crumbled and the world became a different place. On the 20th anniversary of this devastating event, she looks back on what she observed on that day. Together with Jarlath she traces the events and decisions that followed. The thirst for revenge and even torture began that night. Marion recalls the Irish survivor she encountered, the case for invading Iraq and how Bin Laden evaded Bush. Later Jarlath asks Marion for an update on California’s recall, the Texas abortion law debacle and takes the click bait hook, line and sinker!

The Selection Box: Comedy Edition with John Hastings

The Selection Box: Comedy Edition with John Hastings

September 3, 2021

With Marion McKeone away this week we bring you an extra special bonus comedy Selection Box to start your weekend off with a laugh. You’ll probably know John Hastings from his barnstorming performance on America’s Got Talent but the life he lived prior to that big moment is even more extraordinary and hilarious. 

John sits down with Jarlath on the eve of his first album release to talk about the rare infant dyspraxia he was born with that led him to be mercilessly bullied in school. Known for his intensely funny and personal shows John pulls no punches in explaining the strange and rocky road of the tour comedian in Canada and how it feels very similar to Ireland at times. 

As live entertainment returns across the world John talks about the turning point moment he had while performing down a camera for Jarlath’s Return Of Craic online lockdown show, the divorce, the bicycle accident that nearly cost him his arm, Patton Oswalt’s influence and some sage advice for new comics - there really is something for everyone in this week’s Comedy Selection Box from Irishman Abroad. Marion will of course return next week. 

To download John’s new album visit https://www.800poundgorillarecords.com/.
