15 Things To Know About Deadly Woman Roisin Agnew

The brand spanking new podcast – aptly called 12 Angry Minutes has landed today. It is the work of Irish journalist and general all-around kick ass?woman, Roisin Agnew.


Intelligent, topical and funny, it will tackle controversial issues with each episode and looks at how we can harness anger and turn it into creative energy. Sounds interesting, right? ?The first one features artist Jesse Jones, who uses her 12 minutes to address the?lack of abortion rights on our Emerald Isle and compares it to a modern day witch trial.

With every episode, Agnew’s guest will discuss something surprising that’s making them angry for twelve minutes. Forthcoming guests include activist Anna Cosgrave, comedian Tara Flynn, comedian and artist Hugh Cooney, artist Maser and designer and illustrator Wasted Rita.
