Joan Freeman: The Road to the Presidency
On the latest episode of Green Rebel, we interview Senator Joan Freeman, currently campaigning in the Presidential election here in Ireland. Senator Freeman founded Pieta House, a not-for-profit organisation helping to prevent suicide and self-harm.
With the election just weeks away, and the majority of the country content to stick with the current President, (who is campaigning for a second term), we ask her about her reasons behind running for President, we pose questions sent in by people on Facebook and Twitter and we take a deep dive into the socio-political issues facing Ireland today along with her potential solutions for them. Senator Freeman was open and honest in her answers and provided an overview of her hopes for the future of this country.
We are recording a live episode at the Dublin Podcast Festival on October 4th with poet Stephen James Smith. You can see the full line-up and grab tickets http://dublinpodcastfestival.ie.
