The Laughs Of Your Life with Doireann Garrihy

I was so delighted to finally welcome Louise O’Neill to the studio this week because, like many of my guests, we've been trying to line it up for a while. I really admire Louise's work, her new book Idol is fab and she's part of a golden generation of amazing young female authors. I love that. We chatted about how therapy helped her overcome her eating disorder, the actual riot that is attending a Joanne McNally comedy gig, and why people think her dog hates men!This season of The Laughs of your Life is once again brought to you by F&F, fashion at Tesco. Pop in for the weekly shop and step out in style with a new wardrobe this autumn/winter.Trigger warning: This podcast contains discussions about eating disorders. Hosted on Acast.

#393 Louise O'Neill: The Problem With Having Online 'Idols'

Ctrl Alt Delete

My guest today is the author Louise O’Neill – today we are discussing her brilliant new book IDOL – a riveting darkly delicious story that interrogates our relationship with our internet heroes  asking how well we can ever really know the gurus we look up to and their carefully curated profiles. It is written with Louise’s signature style, reminding me of her much applauded book Asking For It, a novel about the life-shattering impact of sexual assault, which published in 2015 to widespread critical acclaim. I think this is her best work yet, and I love all her books fiercely. I hope you enjoy this episode about the themes in IDOL, I so enjoyed catching up with Louise again!Join my Substack community and come and say hi! https://thehyphen.substack.com/Buy IDOL here: https://uk.bookshop.org/a/153/9781787635333Buy DISCONNECTED here: https://uk.bookshop.org/a/153/9781529373127My books: https://uk.bookshop.org/contributors/emma-gannonMy favourite 2022 reads: https://uk.bookshop.org/lists/best-reads-of-2022 Hosted on Acast.

Influencers with Louise O'Neill

Sentimental Garbage

Do influencers make fame feel less special? Influencers distort our ideas of where wealth and fame should come from, and often provoke our hate-follows in the process. We discuss the power of influence and its humble beginnings in the blogging world, the metamorphosis into big business and a curated lifestyle, the exhaustion of the influencer life, and why influencers are so often destroyed by the followers who created them. What happens to them when their influence dies down? Is it better to bow out early, or hang on until the bitter end? And most confusingly of all: are we influencers? Louise O'Neill is the best-selling author of Idol, Asking for It and After the Silence. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
