Society Builders: Ep 6 – Society Building, Abdu’l-Baha and the Generation He Inspired

November 15, 2022, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Society Builders is a personal podcast series produced Dr. Duane Varan as a response to the call of the Universal House of Justice for the release of the society-building power of the Baha’i Faith in ever-greater measures.

In this episode, Duane explores how extensive the influence of the early Baha’i community was in the evolution of key societal ideas including affirmative action, Black pride, the Parent Teacher Association, the moment of silence commemorating the fallen of the First World War and so much more.

You can read why Duane was inspired to create this podcast, what he’s learned along the way, and some practical tips for anyone wishing to make their own podcast series.
