Jack Horgan-Jones #JournalismMatters Ep.175

Our guest in The Tortoise Shack was recently described as the Swiss Army knife of journalists and given the variety and efficiency of his work, we reckon Irish Times journalist, Jack Horgan-Jones kind of likes it. Jack sat down to talk about the media landscape, the job itself and to have some healthy disagreement with us on some of the challenges facing the industry. We also talk housing and the governments Climate Action Plan. Buy a newspaper! Join us: patreon.com/tortoiseshack << Back To The Echo Chamber

Caoimhe Butterly #SafePassage Ep.174

Recent events in Sudan have brought back into focus the role we in the 'West' play in facilitating Human Rights abuses in many parts of the world. Our guest in The Tortoise Shack is educator, trainee psychotherapist, Refugee Rights campaigner and one of the most remarkable people we've met, Caoimhe Butterly. She talks to us about forced migration, building sustainable activism and the need to cede space to the next generation of activists, who see clearly the intersectionality between war, climate breakdown and Human Rights. Caoimhe also talks about how to respond to the recent massacre in the Khartoum sit-in protest and also shares a bit about what drives her and the Hope she feels everyday. We all need more of that.

Caoimhe Butterly #SafePassage Ep.174

Lynn Boylan #MediaPlurality Ep.161

Denis O'Brien selling his share in Independent News and Media has reignited the debate about media plurality in Ireland. Opinions vary over issues like editorial control, self-censorship and, as we know only too well ourselves, the difficulty in making it financially viable. So we were delighted to be joined in The Tortoise Shack by Sinn Féin's Lynn Boylan, who had worked at the previous European Parliament's Employment Committee on diversity in media and media reform. Lynn talks to us about the work of the Committee and how she has seen first hand the climate (in)action by our government from within the EU. This (original) pod was recorded shortly before the European elections and Lynn speaks presciently about the apathy on the doors and has kindly also added an update on her learnings and the learnings for The Broad Left after the results.
