We have an exciting announcement today: we’re launching a podcast! Hosted by Ben and Muireann, we’re looking to have better conversations about abortion in audio as well as text.

Our first ‘Season’ of the podcast will be launching soon, and to whet your appetite we have recorded a short trailer episode explaining what our podcast is about.

Check it out!

Better Conversations: An interview with Josh Brahm of ERI The Minimise Podcast

Josh Brahm of the Equal Rights Institute joins us for a discussion on constructive dialogue within the pro-life movement and the differences and similarities in the pro-life movements in Ireland and the USA. This podcast was recorded in January 2020. Links:
  1. Better Conversations: An interview with Josh Brahm of ERI
  2. Do liberals and conservatives think about abortion differently?
  3. From Pro-choice to Pro-life: How Ciara O’Rourke of the Minimise Project changed her mind
  4. The Minimise Podcast: coming soon

We’re going to be tackling questions like ‘How do the different ways that people tend to think about moral questions in general influence their position on abortion?’ (with reference to Jonathan Haidt’s Moral Foundations Theory) and ‘Does our attitude to unchosen burdens have to change in order for our minds to change on abortion?’

We have guests like Josh Brahm of the Equal Rights Institute, one of our big inspirations as a group.

All our Podcasts will be available here at The Minimise Podcast page as they get uploaded. We look forward to launching and hope you’ll join the conversation! (Email us at with any comments or suggested topics.)
