Retreat! The Places We Escape To, For Better or Worse – Episode 107

In this hazy episode, Dara seeks solace in mindful summer moments and solitary swims. He discusses the idea of retreat and running away to the places we find most comforting and tries to identify which ones might be better for us.

He shares memories of summers past and realises that most of his recollections are located in the Irish countryside, with special mention given to summers working for his father as a teenager.

Dara also talks about the fetishisation of alcohol in Ireland, a famous row in a local pub, yet more parenting fails with his daughter, and the spiritual purity of maintaining personal discipline.
