Comhrá: Sparks of Hope Ep2 – Roots & Wings

November 5, 2022, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Comhrá is a podcast series produced by the Baha’is of Ireland. They called their podcast Comhrá (which is pronounced co-raw and which means ‘conversation’) because they love to talk and they know the best way to get to know each other is to settle down for a chat.

In this second episode of Sparks of Hope, Dr. Iarfhlaith Watson, Head of UCD School of Sociology, speaks with Brendan McNamara about human rights, identity and growing up ‘different’ in Ireland in the 1970s and 80s. In this wide ranging discussion, Iarfhlaith shares his thoughts about how both his personal experiences and his research have contributed to his belief in the importance of identity in developing healthy and sustainable diversity in our societies.  

You can find all the podcast in this series on website for the Baha’is of Ireland.
