Imelda May is, without a doubt, one of the most requested guests in the series to date. This week, Jarlath and Imelda finally had the chance to sit down and chat face to face.

In fascinating detail, Imelda discusses the addictive nature of losing oneself on stage (9:00), her time working every job that she could find when she first moved over to London (14:00) and her clever marketing plan to grow her name while touring with Jools Holland (Patreon Full Length Version only).

From her incredible story about Bono's endless support for her (37:00) to her frank discussion on why artists should 'keep away from talent shows' (42:00), how you have to be totally committed to make it as an artist (30:00) and much more, this is a thoroughly heartfelt conversation with one of Ireland's true musical greats.

Neville Isdell: Episode 294

May 4, 2019

How do you go from being a young boy living in the small Northern Irish town of Downpatrick to becoming the Chairman and CEO of one of the world's biggest brands? While in Dublin visiting EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, Neville Isdell sat down with Jarlath to tell us how he did just that by becoming the 12th CEO of Coca-Cola.

Neville explains how moving to South Africa at the age of 10 exposed him to the realities of apartheid (8:00), the challenges of understanding oneself (23:00) how every country has a period of which they should be ashamed - and Ireland is no exception (1:01:00)
