The Nerve is a podcast produced by the English department at South East Technological University Cork Road campus. Each episode brings together staff and students to discuss a range of topics, including English literature, cultural events and critical theory. Hosted by Dr Jenny O’Connor.
Ho, ho, ho, and happy Christmas! In this festive episode of the podcast, Jenny is joined by Aoife Hearne, dietician and lecturer in the Department of Health Sciences (and previous contributor to TV’s Operation Transformation), Dr John McNamara who lectures in Social Care, Social Science, and Sociology in the Departments of Social Care and Early Childhood, and the Department of Arts, and Dr David Scanlon, lecturer in Biology & Biopharmaceutical Science. Their Christmas recommendations range from books about the social change instigated by the printing press, the science behind disease and addictive behaviour, and novels about love and loss. They also discuss the events that signify Christmas to them and there’s a January recommendation to help get over the Christmas blues.
