Episode 9: The unexpected Pro Choice position of Micheál MartinDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add
If you're looking for us these days, you'll find us down in Buswells, chomping on a carvery and eavesdropping on the goss emanating from all the other tables as we prepare to interview some party leaders. Yep, the DSR gals have gone all establishment (LOL) and are questioning whether this is real life as we head in to Leinster House to chat to Fianna Fail leader Micheál Martin about his unexpected pro-choice views. If parallel universes are a thing, pretty sure this is what it feels like to be in one.
We're also joined by MERJ aka Migrants and Ethnic-Minorities for Reproductive Justice to delve a little deeper into how Migrant women are disproportionately impacted by the Eighth Amendment.
And finally we're doing our best to push through the bank holiday slump to bring you all the usual bits and bobs including events, media shenanigans and the latest development from Facebook outlawing international ad purchases for the ref.

STOP EVERYTHING Mary Lou is in the building. This week we talk to Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald in Leinster House. Yes, they let us in.

Episode 7: Influencers & MuralsDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add
Do you even influence? There's been a lot of conversation abounding about influencers using their platforms to talk about the referendum. Is it their duty to speak up? We figured we had to hear it from the horse's mouth so this week we have the king of Snapgram – this is what he was recently described as in a shopping centre, we know our Kik from our QQ – James Kavanagh along for the ride. Also influencing us this week is our pregnant pal Vogue Williams, who's delving into what it means to be pregnant and pro-choice. And finally, spilling probably the juiciest goss of the week, Cian O'Brien, Creative Director from Project Arts joins us to track the journey of the recently departed (for the second time) Maser mural.
Episode 6: Lads Lads LadsDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add

Joining us for lad chats are dreamboats Richie Sadlier, Blindboy and Maser, with their thoughts about the repeal movement; how to engage men, and what it means to them. Thankfully, today it's raining men. Hallelujah.
Episode5: RUpeal The 8th – The Shade editionDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add
Some shady shit has been going down by the No campaign so we thought it was only fair to throw some shade right back. We don’t like being negative nancies, but as RuPaul says ‘Reading is Fundamental’.

Episode 4: Take Me to Church – Catholicism & RepealDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add
This week we have a theological discussion – who knew, but stick with us! – about how being a believer isn’t incompatible with voting ????YES. The reality is we’ve gazillions of people in our lives who hold really strong faiths and we think they’re being done a disservice by the catholic hierarchy and hardliners in the media.
We’re also really #blessed to be joined by the President of Catholics for Choice, Jon O’Brien, to discuss the complexities of a pro-repeal stance for catholics.
Plus we talk how the No side are canvassing, media shenanigans and Una plugs the shit out of her new book Repeal The 8th - available in all good (independent) book shops and online this week.
Episode 3: Pop your canvassing cherryDon't stop repealin' - the repeal the eighth podcast add
One of us has never canvassed before (ssssh, don't judge!) which made us wonder why that was and how to help her - and others - feel comfortable enough to pop their canvassing cherry.
Speaking of popping, Cara Sanquest from London Irish Abortion Rights Campaign popped in to give us the DL on coming #HomeToVote, how you can support from abroad and what the deal is with donations and making sure you stick to the rules.
And as always... Media Shenanigans, events and more.
