An Irishman Abroad

Men Behaving Better: Episode 1

July 13, 2018

This week, Irishman Abroad Podcasts is proud to deliver to you the inaugural episode of our new podcast series Men Behaving Better. It's a new collection of conversations that nobody else is having. This is a podcast for men who want to change and for women who believe that change is possible.

In front of a packed Soho Theatre in London, Jarlath was joined by comedian’s Pierre Novelli and Fern Brady, and the celebrated human rights lawyer Simone George for the first pathfinding episode of the series. This conversation explores how Fern’s former work as a stripper opened her eyes to the truth behind the power dynamics between men and women (7:00) and the importance of men simply listening (14:00).

From the challenges facing modern men (26:00) to the shocking moment when Simone revealed how she was sexually assaulted inside the high court (32:00), to male fatigue surrounding feminism (49:00) and much more, this conversation is a truly gripping and entertaining way to open the doors to the new series and new kind of conversation about changing men for the better.
