Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”How To Make Running In Winter (A Bit) Easier” (Sonia Explains The Kit You Need, The Mistakes To Avoid & More)

December 7, 2021
With storm Barra bearing down on Ireland there has never been a more appropriate moment to release our long planned but never recorded episode about coping with winter conditions. The temptation to roll over in bed on a Saturday is so vast that even the great Sonia O’Sullivan admits she nearly fell foul of it this past weekend. Instead, she scrambled down to Bushy Park while Jarlath shambled to St Albans. Both got the result! Today Sonia takes us through the basics and not so basic tips and tricks to conquer any weather condition that winter can throw at you. With Catherina McKiernan on the podcast this Sunday, Sonia looks back on their relationship with each other and the media. We get a trip around the parishes, Sonia’s tip of the week, her astonishing book discovery for prolonged peak athletic performance even in old age and a look at whether we all need to dial it back 10%. Patrons get a further exclusive 30mins of content and detailed episode notes with a beginners guide to running 5K direct from Sonia herself.

Claire Walsh: Learning To Breathe Again

Claire Walsh: Learning To Breathe Again

December 4, 2021
The headline might read, 'Claire Walsh - the only Irish person ever to compete at the Freediving World Championships' but there is way more to the story of this trailblazing Irish woman. Jarlath caught up with Claire at an unusual crossroads in her life. Before all hell broke loose, when she wasn’t travelling the world taking part in one of the toughest sports known to man, Claire Walsh taught businesses and individuals how to harness the power of their breath. All that came to an abrupt halt for obvious reasons. Today as she prepares to write her story for the first time, we get the unfiltered account of what brought her to the edge and what stopped her from tipping over. Thanks to all those who support Irishman Abroad in whatever way you can. The best way is to kick in a couple of euro a month on Patreon in return for access to all our content including hundreds of hours of archived interviews and up-coming conversations with the likes of Jack Whitehall and Catherina McKiernan.

Week 1 - The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial: Plus The Mississippi Abortion Law, Michael Flynn & More - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Mini Pod)

Week 1 - The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial: Plus The Mississippi Abortion Law, Michael Flynn & More - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Mini Pod)

December 3, 2021
With week one drawing to a conclusion the award winning US correspondent Marion McKeone explains what exactly took place. Jarlath wonders what kind of defence can be mounted for the business partner of a convicted predator such as Epstein. Discrediting the memory of the victims seems to be the path chosen by Maxwell's ferocious defence team. The key witnesses, the pilot who claims he saw nothing and the possibility that the conspiracy theories relating to the case are true - Jarlath and Marion get to it all and even a bit more. With vaccines in salads and Roe vs Wade putting an end to the impartiality of the SCOTUS, there’s a lot to get to this week but as always Marion delivers.

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”Why Running Easy Is So Hard” (Sonia‘s Guide To Getting Your Pacing Exactly Right)

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O‘Sullivan: ”Why Running Easy Is So Hard” (Sonia‘s Guide To Getting Your Pacing Exactly Right)

November 30, 2021
Why do 99% of runners, including Sonia O’Sullivan, go too fast on their easy runs? Experts believe that 80% of your running each week should be done at a very easy conversational pace in order to build stamina and recover properly from harder sessions yet very few people actually stick within this pace window. Most will go a little too fast, some (like Jarlath) have gone so fast on their slow days that injury is just around the corner. This week Sonia explains why this simple piece of advice is so hard to take for so many people. How do you establish what your pace should be, why is Jack Daniels involved and is there anything to be said for listening to your heart and not the clock? This is a humdinger of a chat that will resonate with runners of all levels. There’s also a classic tip of the week, a trip around the parishes on Strava and a great listener letter about returning from injury.

What Lies Beneath The Ahmaud Arbery Murder: Marion McKeone Examines The Convictions - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

What Lies Beneath The Ahmaud Arbery Murder: Marion McKeone Examines The Convictions - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

November 26, 2021
Three cases that directly impact the rise of vigilantism in America were decided this week. The lynching of Ahmaud Arbery shocked the world but only when the public got to see footage of what took place. The place saw the same footage and were content not to act. Jarlath asks Marion about what this says to the public on the other side of these convictions. Marion takes us through the trial step by step and attempts to join the dots between Arbery, Rittenhouse and Charlottesville. Justice was served this week but how it came about was miraculous. How many similar cases have been buried? Marion and Jarlath also offer their weekly recommendations for what to watch and read. Thanks to all of our loyal and legendary patrons for supporting the continued creation of this series.

Richard Chambers: Telling The Story Within The Storm

Richard Chambers: Telling The Story Within The Storm

November 20, 2021
Richard Chambers sits down to discuss the storm surrounding his new book “A State Of Emergency - The Story Of Ireland’s Covid Crisis”. It’s an extraordinary piece of writing from within the storm. Each and every day while covering the news for Virgin Media News in Dublin, Richard had a rare vantage point of those in charge, those on the front lines and those who suffered most through this crisis. He tells Jarlath about why he wanted to gather what he saw into one publication and what he feels could happen from here. The book is available in all good bookshops and online suppliers now.

The Trial Of Ghislaine Maxwell: Marion McKeone‘s Guide To The Case - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

The Trial Of Ghislaine Maxwell: Marion McKeone‘s Guide To The Case - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Trailer)

November 19, 2021
With jury selection almost complete, Marion McKeone looks ahead to the most anticipated celebrity trial in recent memory. Ghislaine Maxwell stands accused of sex crimes, conspiracy and perjury related to the actions of the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019, while awaiting sex trafficking charges. Attorneys have said that Ghislaine Maxwell “played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify, befriend and groom minor victims” and “in some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse”. Marion looks into the dark corners and absurdity of the jury selection process, the presiding judge and questions over what this trial can hope to reveal. Later in the episode Jarlath gets an update on the censure of Paul Gosar and the closing arguments in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.
