An Irishman Abroad

Ray D’Arcy: Episode 306

July 28, 2019

Ray D'Arcy doesn't usually sit on the opposite side of the interviewing desk and, as a result, this highly anticipated interview with the broadcasting legend does not disappoint.

Ray welcomed Jarlath into his home for a wide-ranging conversation which spans from filling Ian Dempsey's shoes on The Den (17:00) to coping with personal issues live on air (38:00).

Jarlath asks Ray about losing sleep over JNLR figures (43:00), why he felt 'more free' in Today FM than in RTÉ (51:00) and the moment of clarity that made him say 'what a load of shite' to religion (Patreon Full Length Version Only) and much more. This is a fascinating conversation with one of Ireland's most loved broadcasters.
