    Anna Delvey and Perception vs Reality

    Anna Delvey, AKA the fake heiress, landed herself in prison in 2018 after conning New York Society out of hundreds of thousands of $$$. This month she emerged from prison with a Netflix deal and a defiant attitude. She's not sorry and why would she be? In this episode we talk about profiting from a crime, perception vs reality and the era of 'manifestion'.

    LIVE with Diet Coke | The Power of Gossip and The Importance Of Celebrity Gossip

    LIVE with Diet Coke | The Power of Gossip and The Importance Of Celebrity Gossip

    It’s our last episode of the season and no better way to do it than with a live show brought to you by Diet Coke!

    In our live show, we chat about how the Because I Can message resonates with each of us when it comes to career confidence and committing to passions.

    We’re joined by the incredible Caitlin McBride (Style Editor at Independent.ie) and Courtney Smith (stylist and creative director) to chew on the biggest stories of the year. We discuss the power of the fashion industry and the importance of celebrity gossip as a platform to chat about what we value as a culture. What does our obsession with Meghan Markle's pregnancy say about our society's views on the family unit? Why is asking a woman what she's wearing in a red carpet context sometimes deemed inappropriate?

    Before Brunch Podcast is the perfect Sunday morning hangover cure. Megan and Cassie chew over all the biggest stories of the week, from the frivolous to the meaningful and everything in between. It's the same dirt you talk about at Brunch, we're just digging a little deeper.

    Ep. 36 Why Do We Love a Good Scare?

    Ep. 36 Why Do We Love a Good Scare?

    It’s almost Halloween and so we’re rolling out the scary movies, bingeing on dark series and ultimately viewing our screens from behind blankets with cushions pulled over our eyes.

    In this week’s episode we talk about the success of The Haunting of Hill House and what it is that keeps us coming back for more and more.

    Mike Flanagan's re-imagining of Shirley Jackson's 1959 gothic novel pulls the focus away from the house and onto the family. Every family has its own monsters - the real demons lie in unresolved trauma and we discuss the mechanisms Flanagan uses to deliver this message.

    We also share all the details of our LIVE brunch with Diet Coke taking place next week in Cleaver East.

    Ep 34. Dublin Actress Aisling Breen on 'Cushioning', Quick Changes, and Committing To Your Passion

    Ep 34. Dublin Actress Aisling Breen on 'Cushioning', Quick Changes, and Committing To Your Passion

    Dublin actress Aisling Breen began performing at age 7 and never surrendered to the pressure to 'get a real job'. That's the kind of sass and confidence we love at Before Brunch, and it's exactly what Diet Coke's #BecauseICan campaign is all about.
    She currently stars in Tinder The Comedy at The Tivoli theatre, playing Shaz - a Tinderella on a mission to get her mate a plus one to a wedding. We caught up with Aisling to chat Tinder in your 30s, what it's really like to be a Billie Barry kid, and the reality of committing to your passion - it's not all fun and games but for Aisling there was no other way.
