Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 1: Naysan and Rainn

Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.

In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts and minds and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.

In our very first episode, we kick things off with the founder of Baha’i Blog Naysan Naraqi and I interviewing each other. We talk about Baha’i Blog, education for young girls in Haiti, world citizenship, being a Baha’i in Hollywood, books we’re reading, and some of the things we’re working on within our own spiritual development.

Be sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Baha’i Blocast for more weekly episodes on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Soundcloud, or you can check out new episodes here on the landing page.

Naysan is the editor of Baha'i Blog and he has worked in various avenues of media for two decades. He’s passionate about using the arts and media to support and explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and he has produced and collaborated on popular music projects like the "DawnBreaker Collective" and the successful Ruhi-inspired sequence of "MANA" albums.

  1. Great interview. Thank you. Love to hear personal stories how a person finds the Faith, and in this case never really got it as a kid, even with good parents. I work with Baha’i children and worry about those who just don’t seem to get it. They have such great parents. It is so painful. It gives me hope that it is not me as a teacher or the parents, but a good push from Baha’u’llah that really does the trick. Thank you.

  2. Fantastic interview! Especially loved hearing about the insights gained from visiting several clusters around the world and how the arts give hope. Looking forward to hearing more. Thank you for providing this great service.

  3. I’ve also worked my way through a number of dry biographies, which are worth it as they almost always contain hidden gems. If you want a superbly written biography, try The Maxwell’s of Montreal. Solid facts and beautiful sentences combined.

  4. Thanks so much for starting this Baha’i Blogcast! I just decided to listen to the first one this morning, I will be a follower for sure! I have also sent the link to my grandkids, I think they will appreciate it as well. We just returned from Clearwater Baha’i Summer School, so listening to this is a great way to still feel connected. Thanks again.
