Green Rebel: Frankie Gaffney
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.
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.
