BONUS ep: LittleTalks by Steph Connolly

February 3, 2021

LittleTalks is a project which aids communication between children and their loved ones in prison.

Steph Connolly did her BA in IADT and has just finished her MA in NCAD. Her design brain has taken a problem she saw from her own life and created a beautiful, practical solution to quite a sensitive issue. LittleTalks is a project she created in her BA and is now developing further following her MA. 

This episode acts as a season bridge as I develop Season 2 which will come later in the year! I am now looking for larger MA or PHD projects. Get in touch if you would like to be involved! Email paper.radio.podcast@gmail.com

Episode 8: Corporate Law & The Environment

November 17, 2020

This week I’m talking to Luke Gibbons. Luke did his Bachelor of Laws in Trinity College Dublin and wrote his paper in 2019 entitled “Corporate Criminal Liability for Environmental Wrongs”.

This paper is so important and outlines the problems when it comes to punishing corporations criminally for committing wrongs on the environment. Luke explains the issues that arise bringing the corporations to court in the first place, how the legal system has yet to catch up and find a way of finding corporations liable, and how difficult it is to outline proper sanctions too. This conversation was so fascinating !
