An Irishman Abroad

Angela Scanlon (returns): Episode 217

November 11, 2017

This week Angela Scanlon returns to An Irishman Abroad after 3 years to discuss her incredible journey to, becoming a household name in both Ireland and the UK. Angela opens up about the pressures of the modern culture of online shaming (3:00), the ominous sense that she got while meeting Harvey Weinstein (28:00) and why she believes that fashion advice no longer has a place on television (27:00).

From her attempts to disarm Katie Hopkins who she finds "frankly, quite repulsive" (38:00) to being an absolute pig at home (53:00) and how she once used to count a box of money when she felt down (18:00), this is a fascinating conversation with one of Ireland's fastest rising stars in Britain.
