The Eighth 00: Introducing The Eighth

Introducing The Eighth, a podcast documenting the upcoming referendum to repeal the 8th in Ireland. This episode, a prequel to the series, outlines the host, Ciara O’Connor’s background and the origin of the series – a safe space to ask honest, hard questions, to listen to people speak freely, honestly, and openly. Ciara talks about the kinds of struggles she has had as a pro choice person – and someone who has had to travel to the UK for an abortion – has had in the making of this series and in meeting and talking to people who are supportive of, or utterly opposed to her worldview.
