An Irishman Abroad

Stefanie Preissner: Episode 243

May 11, 2018

This week Stefanie Preissner joined Jarlath for her most open and honest interview to date. With sobering honesty, Stefanie opens up about her struggles with moderation (7:00), being excluded from her own group of friends (16:00) and how she handled the success of her series ‘Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope’ (20:00).

Her thoughts on learning to say ‘no’ to conformity (46:00), living with social anxiety (48:00) and the Cork versus Dublin debate (42:00) are ones that must be heard. This is a truly gripping conversation with one of Ireland’s most vital social commentators.
