#77 | A Rose By Any Other F**king Name: Brianna Parkins

Darach is on leave, so Gearóidín takes the hot seat as the gang are joined by a special guest. Brianna Parkins was the Sydney Rose in 2016 and when she took the stage in Tralee she used her platform to call for legal access to abortion. Two years later she returned to Ireland to campaign for the repeal of the Eighth Amendment and is now working in the media in Dublin. She called in to Headstuff Studios to discuss the differences between Ireland and Australia, her favourite Irish words, and her favourite deadly Australian animals. Peadar and Eimear also chatted with Brianna about her Irish roots, Dublin accents and the heart-stopping terror an Irish person suffers when a deadly venomous spider falls from your ceiling.
