Erin & Terry discuss multiple topics, some of which touch on the positive's & negatives of the Irish mentality, the importance of self belief, rotating stay at home duties in order to balance family life with the entertainment industry & much much more. Erin is deeply passionate about raising awareness on the dangers of social media & the damaging effects it has on youngsters, particularly teenage girls. She opens up about her own experiences dealing with online trolls & how some are people she knows personally.
Having performed as a singer for years Terry discusses how he accidentally fell into the role of ring announcer when he was asked to step in last minute for a no show MC & proved to be a natural at it. Terry has since gone from strength to strength announcing fights in some of the biggest arena's in Europe & talks about his upcoming deal with MTK in which he'll appear on at least 24 shows this year.
Erin talks about her love for dance & how DWTS helped her to regain her gritty determination, a feeling she feared she'd lost for good after the birth of her second child Harry. One of the more interesting conversations on this weeks podcast is the discussion around the relationship between celebs & pro dancers on the hit TV show. Erin tells of an hilarious story involving a lift that outlines the professionalism of the dancers & Terry offers his views on what it's like watching from the sidelines.
