The Nerve is a podcast produced by the English department at Waterford Institute of Technology. Each episode brings together staff and students to discuss a range of topics
In this episode, Jenny is joined by Luke Cassidy, the author of the novel Iron Annie, and writer of the stage show adaptation of the text, the Iron Annie Cabaret. Luke talks about setting his debut novel in his home town of Dundalk, writing two female lead characters, and what is involved in getting a stage show off the ground in Covid times.
Warning: During the recording, Luke performs a reading of Iron Annie that contains curse words, so this recording may not be suitable for all ages.
