Green Rebel: Frankie Gaffney

Green Rebel

A new podcast where hosts, ‘our’ Emily O’Callaghan and Irina Dzhambazova speak to original mavericks from the creative industries.

This episode – Number 2 – they meet actor and activist Frankie Gaffney.

Emily writes:

In this ​short ​interview, Frankie  manages to cover everything from Shakespeare through Joyce​,​ via Marxism, Maya Angelou, Roald Dahl, politics, discrimination, racism, misogyny, Irish Twitter and accidentally emailing filthy sex scenes from his book ‘Dublin Seven’ to his mother. A Freudian click if ever there was one.

​Frankie has gone from getting into “scrapes” with the Gardai​ to DJing to ultimately releasing a novel which ended up at the Number 1 spot in Hodges Figgis and is now lecturing in Trinity and completing a PhD.

He is an outspoken activist both online and in real life. He truly believes that the love his Mother gave him for reading books from a young age has saved him from a life that could have gone differently. Frankie made for a captivating guest on this episode.

    Frankie’s got to get over his hero worship of the multi-millionaire Conor McGregor. McGregor’s views on the LGBT community, women and Black People are very, very reactionary. As is his worship of money.
