An Irishman Abroad

Laura Whitmore and Roisin Conaty (live at Soho Theatre): Episode 239

April 13, 2018

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.
