The narrative or story of a video game is hugely important for many reasons and Sarah Maria joins Dave to explain why. Last weekend video game publishing giant Rockstar Games was the victim of an unprecedented content leak.
11: But I’m A Cheerleader with Sarah Maria Griffin & Alan Maguire (Juvenalia)
The Last One To See
OK, so this may not be a title that rings familiar to a lot of folks. But hear us out! The Last One To See wasn’t conceived with the idea that everyone everyone has seen each of the selections, and Sarah very much understood the assignment (and Alan willingly agreed to go along with it) with the selection of BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER - a queer classic and rare entry in the lesbian teen movie genre that saw a 20th anniversary re-release in 2020. As mentioned, Alan and Sarah are our guests this week and you may know their work from the fantastic Juvenalia podcast.

Ciao bella! It's our second Maeve Binchy-cast of the season, with returning guest Sarah Maria Griffin. It’s the dawn of the Celtic Tiger in early nineties Ireland, and Nora O’Donoghue, or Signora, is returning home after over 20 years away. Having spent her youth in Sicily, in love with a married man, she has returned with no money, no friends and no prospects. She begins teaching italian at Mountainview school, where the beleaguered Aidan Dunne has just been passed over for the job of principal in favour of the womanising Tony O’Brien. Tony, meanwhile, is in love with Aidan’s adult daughter. The book follows every student in the evening class, subtly changing each of their destinies, and culminating with a trip to Italy at the end of the book. Sarah Maria Griffin is an award winning novelist and zine maker, follower her at @griffski Caroline O'Donoghue is a novelist, her latest novel, Scenes of a Graphic Nature, is out now. All Our Hidden Gifts is available for pre-order Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
We're live from Body & Soul Festival in Ireland talking Maeve Binchy's classic CIRCLE OF FRIENDS. This 700 page epic about a single academic school year is probably the most frequently spotted book on Irish shelves, and with good reason. We talk upwardly mobile Catholics in 1950s Ireland, the specific pains of being a Big Strapping Country lass in a Nan Mahon world, the exquisite world-building of Binchy's Ireland, and learning to embrace Irish fiction, clichés and all. Sarah Maria Griffin is the author of two novels, OTHER WORDS FOR SMOKE and SPARE & FOUND PARTS, and is the co-host of the podcast Juvenalia. This podcast was recorded at Body & Soul Festival, Westmeath. Artwork by Gavin Day, music by Harry Harris, produced by Caroline O'Donoghue and mixed by Hannah Varrall. Hosted on Acast.

Sarah Maria Griffin - Reading, Writing And Finding Your Voice
Our Man In Stockholm
Sarah Maria Griffin is a novellist and poet who effortlessly flits between the worlds of fiction and non-fiction, engaging in occasional (and often regular) acts of journalism. Her approach to writing and her thoughts around how we express ourselves are well worth a listen for any journalist or writer trying to find their own unique voice.
This week we're travelling to Dublin to meet the wonderful author, poet, journalist and podcaster Sarah Maria Griffin. Sarah's first book, Not Lost was an essay collection concerning a year spent in San Francisco. She then authored the critically acclaimed novels Spare and Found Parts and Other Words for Smoke. We talked to her about pilgrimages, the importance of helping others, video games and the amazing array of Irish women writers currently working.BOOK (CLICK ON TITLES FOR MORE)Daisy Buchanan - The SisterhoodSarah Maria Griffin - Not LostSarah Maria Griffin - Found and Spare PartsSarah Maria Griffin - Other Words For SmokeAoife Dooley - How to Deal with Poxes Shanny Jean Maney - I Love ScienceAnthony Bourdain - Hungry GhostsAnthony Bourdain - Kitchen ConfidentialMFK Fisher - Consider the OysterErin Morgenstern - The Night CircusMaeve Higgins - Maeve in AmericaEmilie Pine - Notes to SelfSinead Gleeson - ConstellationsDeirdre Sullivan - Tangleweed and BrineMoira Fowley-Doyle - The Accident SeasonJune Caldwell - Little Town MooneLouise O’Neill - The Surface BreaksEimear McBride - A Girl Is a Half-formed ThingSara Baume - A Line Made by WalkingCaroline O’Donoghue - Promising Young WomenDorothy Macardle - The UninvitedTana French - In The WoodsLorrie Moore - Who Will Run The Frog HospitalBelinda McKeon - TenderBelinda McKeon - SolaceDave Rudden - 12 Angels WeepingSarah Davis Goff - Last Ones Left AliveDouglas Coupland - Life After GodDouglas Coupland - Bit RotDouglas Coupland - Generation XGlen David Gold - Carter Beats the DevilDouglas Coupland - MicroserfsJilly Cooper - RidersC.

Ep 132 Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald & Sarah Maria Griffin
The Women's Podcast
Feminists Are Everywhere in the title of the annual event held by the National Women's Council in Dublin. And we really are everywhere - even in Dail Eireann. (Hi, Leo!) In this episode we hear from one of the feminists who addressed that event last month, Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald who spoke about the challenges and milestones when it comes to women in Irish society. And going further afield, we listen in on a recent Irish Abroad event, where returned Irish emigrant and author of Spare and Found Parts, Sarah Maria Griffin, talked about coming home to Irish Times journalist Ciara Kenny.
Series 3 of the WGM kicks off with a live Q&A with BFFs and fantastic young Irish authors Dave Rudden (Knights of the Borrowed Dark) and Sarah Maria Griffin (Spare and Found Parts). It's a fascinating chat with extraordinary insight from two fo the countries brightest new literary stars and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. www.theweeklygm.com
