Bridget Whelan - The Podcast
/

Journalist, novelist and teacher, Bridget Whelan's career took her from Catholic weekly The Universe to working with Paul Foot on The Daily Mirror and beyond. It's a fascinating story and in it we discuss changes not only for the Irish in Britain but also in the role of newspapers in this country, as well as the courtship of her parents in postwar Britain and the meaning of that deceptively simple word: "home."

Meanwhile, at The Plastic Pedestal, Janet Behan pays tribute to the actress Brig Brennan
