Interview with Eoghan McDermott

Eoghan McDermott Interviewed by @YMTfm

Eoghan McDermott is an Irish television and radio presenter mostly known for hosting The Voice of Ireland. We caught up with him at Féilte.

In the interview, Eoghan jokes that he has come to the conference because “he was paid loads of money and is in debt to a vicious money lender” before going on to talk about how his parents were teachers and how there were “always teaching conversations going on in the house throughout the years.”

McDermott goes on to talk about how when he spoke out about his mental well-being. He said that the overwhelming reaction from young people was saying thank you for speaking out, because it’s hard.

YMTfm’s interview with Lord David Puttnam

Jack and Aisling interviewed Lord Puttnam.  In the interview, they talked about technology in education, UNICEF, David’s worldwide teaching from his old barn in Cork and they couldn’t help but mention his huge success in film making.  Lord Puttnam sits on the Labour benches but he’s not a politician.  He believes that technology is the only way forward.
