Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 40: An Introduction to the Baha’i Faith

Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.

In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.

In our 40th episode of the Baha’i Blogcast, we thought we’d do something a little different by sharing an audio version of an animation called ‘An Introduction to the Baha’i Faith’. I worked on this animation with Baha’i Blog and our friends at and SwissVBS, and we published it about a month ago – just in time for the 200th anniversary of the Birth of the Bab celebrations happening around the world. It’s been really well received with over a million views so far, and seeing as so many of us are consuming content in audio format nowadays, we thought it would be useful to create an audio version for the Baha’i Blogcast with a little personal commentary from yours truly, at the beginning and at the end. I hope you find this episode both interesting and useful!

Watch the animation, and check some related links below:
