Episode Description
Thursday, Jun 14, 2018 - 7:30 AM    "Ireland's Inis Meain" According to legend, Oliver Cromwell, the 17th-century fanatical Prostestant "Lord Protector" of England, gave the Irish Catholics a choice: They could go to hell or go to Connacht.

Hesser explores Ireland's pre-colonial past as the 150 Gaelic-speaking inhabitants of this wet rock in the Atlantic try to figure out how to manage their legacy and lifestyle just outside of the contaminating influences of the modern world.
