#31 | Ellen Tannam & Sarah Griffin

In Episode 31 – recorded at HeadStuff HQ – Alison chats with fellow podcasters Ellen Tannam and Sarah Griffin, of Juvenalia fame. They talk about feminist saints, wanting money for making art and naming chip toppings after themselves.

Ellen Tannam is a freelance writer and editor whose work has been featured on The Pool, The Daily Edge, The Journal and Her.ie. She is very funny on Twitter, both as herself and as an alternative RTÉ guide. She’s one third of HeadStuff’s Juvenalia podcast, a show where people talk about things they loved from their childhoods.

Sarah Griffin is the author of Spare and Found Parts and Not Lost: One Young Irishwoman’s Emigrant Story. Her poem, We Face This Land, was the inspiration behind Dave Tyan’s acclaimed short film for the Repeal The Eighth Campaign. Follow her on Twitter to keep up with her latest work or hear her with Ellen Tannam and Alan Maguire on Juvenalia.
