David Freyne and Sam Keeley (The Cured): Episode 240

20Apr

Writer/director David Freyne and actor Sam Keeley join Jarlath to discuss their stories and their new movie "The Cured".

In the first half of this bumper episode, David explains the pressure of proving his worth in his first feature film (21:00), the genius of Tom Vaughan Lawlor’s performance (14:00) and his hope that ‘The Cured’ finds the right audience (31:00).

Sam joins Jarlath in the second half to discuss how he prepared for the incredibly challenging role of Senan (53:00), living with the insecurity of being an actor (1:01:00) and how the social presence of stars is an influential factor for film studios nowadays (1:14:00). Both Sam and David give a fascinating insight into what it takes to make a groundbreaking movie and how parallels can be found between the story and Ireland's upcoming referendum.

13Apr

In what was one of the most enjoyable live episodes of the series to date, Laura Whitmore and Roisin Conaty joined Jarlath live in front of a sold out Soho Theatre to discuss sexism, consent and their hopes for gender equality in the future.

With refreshing honesty, Laura and Roisin speak about the routine abuse of women (11:00), how men are judged differently to women for the exact same behaviours (23:00) and hilariously beating online trolls at their own game (39:00).

From Laura’s unsettling experience with a policeman outside her home (48:00) and the time a male colleague took issue with the fact that she was being paid more than him (26:00) to how Roisin was told to avoid men attacking her on the street (9:00) and much, much more, this episode is a true highlight of the series to date.

Steve explains the 'different breed' of Christian Brother education that he had when he moved to the west (12:00), the ridiculous career guidance that he received there (17:00) and how the resulting feeling of being left behind while doing the wrong college course drove him on in his artistic pursuits (30:00).

The new Stunning album is out now.
