About the Show

Curious about Ireland’s true identity beyond being a shadow of the UK? 

Join Chief Explorer Rajan Nazran in a captivating conversation with Cormac O Donnchu to discover the authentic story of Ireland through firsthand experiences.

Ireland’s history is intricate, often intertwined with the UK, casting it into shadows. However, beneath the surface lies a passionate embrace of indigenous heritage, exemplified by being the first country to legalise same-sex marriages and the birthplace of Halloween. The gradual shift from religious dominance and the warm spirit of camaraderie, where strangers are just friends waiting to meet, create a harmonious atmosphere. The country’s deep-rooted passion for music and dance adds vibrant energy to its cultural tapestry. From a strong history of immigration to a fervent love for sports, Ireland’s influence reaches far and wide.

Tune in for an amazing time as you uncover the true meaning of Irishness!
