Bad Bridget

Episode1: Poverty


Welcome to the Bad Bridget Podcast. Hear how many young Irish girls and women, some as young as 11 or 12, travelled alone to America to escape poverty at home and to earn money for their families. Listen to how the discrimination and prejudice experienced by the Irish over 150 years ago has similar echoes in today’s society.
