Living in Switzerland

Oct 7, 2022

In this episode, we welcome back Clare O'Dea, who spoke with us once before about Swiss neutrality.

Clare is an Irish author and journalist living in Fribourg, here in Switzerland. She worked for the international service of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation for 10 years, and she's written three books, 'The Naked Swiss: The Nation Behind 10 Myths', which examines the main stereotypes about the Swiss, 'The Naked Irish', which does the same thing for Ireland, and Voting Day, her first novel, which is set in 1959, on the day that Swiss men voted 'no' to granting women the vote. It will be Voting Day that we'll be looking at a little more closely in today's episode.
