With the release of ‘The Mess We’re In’, the tables are turning and, for the first time on Changes, your host Annie Macmanus is the interviewee. Annie’s new novel, which is out now, is laced into her own life experience and changes. It’s a coming-of-age story with themes about moving from Ireland to London. So, the interviewer had to be someone who can relate, someone who is Irish, a fellow Dubliner who also currently lives in London; enter one of Ireland's best, a former guest on Changes, the wonderful comedian and host of the podcast My Therapist Ghosted me, Joanne McNally. It’s the first interview Joanne has ever done and we thought she nailed it. Together, Joanne and Annie chat about the novel, being Irish abroad, Annie’s biggest changes going right back to being a teenager on a different trajectory to DJing and writing, re discovering her childhood journals, having children as a female DJ, leaving BBC Radio 1 after 17 years, the yearn for Ireland, wanting to feel settled and so much more. There’s plenty of laughs along the way. Huge thanks go to Joanne for popping her interviewing cherry for Changes.You can buy ‘The Mess We’re In’ now here: https://geni.us/TheMessWereInChanges is a deaf friendly podcast, transcripts can be accessed here: https://www.anniemacmanus.com/changesYou can listen back to Joanne McNally's Changes episode here: https://play.acast.com/s/findingannie/joanne-mc Hosted on Acast.
