46 - Louise Bruton


In show 46, journalist and festivals expert Louise Bruton has Tara saying “wow” a lot as she tells of travels, gigs and famous people who’ve sat on her knee. (Harry the dog has a lot to say, you’ll hear him on backing vocals.) They discuss Tara’s badness at festivals, and whether weekend woodlands need enhancement, or if childlike wonder is really all you? Festival tips and wisdom, and stories about getting up-close and personal with Grace Jones and Taylor Swift. The real ones. (Tara says “wow” some more. Harry says “bow wow”.) Louise is behind the Legless in Dublin blog; how hard is it to keep something like that going on your own? Also: singledom, access glasses, lone wolves and velociraptors. No wonder Tara says “wow”.  (NB during the interview, Tara mixes up Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. But sure, those billionaires are all the one, right?) http://leglessindublin.com ‘How Would You Like to be Treated?’ TEDx talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odUrmmxH4RI Twitter/ Instagram @luberachi --- Website http://www.taraflynn.ie Patreon https://www.patreon.com/taraflynnirl Instagram https://www.instagram.com/taraflynnirl
