The Vanishing Ireland Podcast Series 2021
Sharing Stories of the Wisdom, Resilience and time honoured Humour of Ireland’s Elders
Twenty years since author and historian Turtle Bunbury and photographer James Fennell, founded the acclaimed Vanishing Ireland project, Turtle Bunbury is creating a new series of profile interviews, sharing the life stories of Ireland’s elders.
Kindly supported by SuperValu, the call is going out to the people of Ireland to propose elder family members or friends who would like to share their stories.
Vanishing Ireland with Turtle Bunbury is a podcast series of interviews with Ireland’s elders, celebrating their life stories, challenges, courage, kindness and humour. The series seeks to document the, very often, extraordinary lives of our older population in a way that celebrates the past while informing younger generations in shaping the future. Created in audio format, Turtle will discuss life and its learnings with people across Ireland, saving and celebrating their voices for future generations.
Speaking about the Vanishing Ireland Podcast Series, Bunbury says: “It is so important to chronicle the experiences and voices of our older generations. Just listening to the stories of how they lived their lives helps us to learn how to adapt their wisdom and humour to manage and enjoy our own lives.”
All interviews are carried out remotely i.e. we will courier an interview pack to your home, and ask a techy friend or family member to assist in setting up the equipment.
