La Sociedad podcast series

20 Mar 2023

Sharing the stories of Hispanic and Latino students in Ireland.

La Sociedad is a podcast series that shares the journeys of Hispanic and Latino students in Ireland. Through interviews with these students, the series explores important topics such as migration, identity, and community building, giving listeners a deeper understanding of the experiences and challenges faced by the Hispanic and Latino communities in Ireland.
Featuring UCC students from Peru, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia, the series consists of 12 video podcast episodes and aims to increase the positive representation of the Hispanic and Latino communities in Ireland.
Diana Vicezar, a Paraguayan student at University College Cork, created the podcast as a way to showcase the experiences of Hispanic and Latino students in Ireland and to provide a space for these students to share their stories. “The podcast was born out of my personal experience studying abroad in Ireland, where I noticed a
lack of representation of Hispanic and Latinos in the mainstream media,” explains Diana. She felt that the experiences of her community were not being properly represented, and that their stories were not being heard. She believes that by sharing these stories, the podcast can help to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by these students, and ultimately promote greater inclusivity and cultural diversity. Through her work on La Sociedad, Diana hopes to inspire other students to create their own platforms and use their voices to make a positive impact. She believes that the power of personal storytelling can help to break down
cultural barriers and create a more inclusive society for all.
Launched on March 1st, the podcast has already gained a following, with listeners praising the thoughtful and inspiring conversations featured in each episode. By sharing the experiences of Hispanic and Latino students in Ireland, La Sociedad is providing a valuable perspective on the challenges faced by these communities and the importance of representation and community building.
Fun fact: La Sociedad is the first podcast focused on Latino and Hispanic students in Ireland.
