The incredible life story of writer/director Colin Broderick is one that truly must be heard. This week, you get to do just that.
In this refreshingly open and honest conversation, Colin speaks to Jarlath about the post-traumatic stress that he discovered he was suffering from having grown up during the Troubles, resulting in him being emotionally disconnected having witnessed the massacre of people he knew. Colin details his journey in America where he has survived alcoholism, homelessness and prison before telling us the story of how he discovered writing.
