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

December 17, 2019, in Audio > Podcasts, by

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 BahaiTeachings.org 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:

* Here’s a link to the article I wrote explaining the project and the thought process behind the script: What is the Baha’i Faith? An Introduction by Rainn Wilson

* And here’s Naysan Naraqi’s article about some of the behind-the-scenes as well: An Introduction to the Baha’i Faith by Rainn Wilson – A New Animation!

You can find all of our episodes here on the Baha’i Blogcast page, and be sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Baha’i Blogcast for more upcoming episodes on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Soundcloud.

Thanks for listening!
