Dublin songwriter Ruth-Anne Cunningham chats to Róisín about her incredible career which took with a bang when she won the ASCAP Songwriters ‘Best Pop Song’ award for a song she wrote when she was 19. Since then she has written a string of hits for the likes of Britney Spears, One Direction and John Legend, but in the last two years she has been focusing on her own singing career. Ruth-Anne has just released her new single ‘Superman’, which she says is "anthem for women who have felt men took advantage of them in their position.” She spoke to Roisin ahead of her performance at the Kaleidoscope festival in Wicklow this weekend. Plus: Ahead of Dublin Pride parade on Saturday, Róisín talks to director of Dublin Pride Clodagh Leonard and chair of TENI Sara Phillips about Pride and the issues facing LGBTQI people in Ireland today. But first, Kitty Holland is in studio to discuss the need to always be vigilant when it comes to women's healthcare and what she's been watching on TV lately.
