Sparking Change Podcast
Dil Wickremasinghe shines a light on the latest social justice and mental health stories and hopes to spark positive social change one conversation at a time.
Just one week after her decade long Newstalk show “Global Village” was abruptly cancelled, Dil joined The HeadStuff Podcast Network to create her brand new podcast, Sparking Change with Dil. Her new podcast will continue the work she began over a decade ago on national radio but will be even more ambitious. Along with her dedicated team Dil hopes to raise awareness, break down barriers and stigma, and nurture social entrepreneurship and active citizenship.
The weekly hour long episode is released on Monday mornings and comprises of two or three segments based on the latest social justice and mental health stories.
Dil is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist and began her career in Irish media in 2006 by volunteering in Phoenix FM, a community radio station in Blanchardstown. Just two years later she began presenting a weekly 2 hour live show on Newstalk 106-108 FM.
“My decade long show was axed just weeks after I publicly spoke out about a fellow presenter’s views on rape, I am determined more than ever to continue my work as a journalist and advocate for the voiceless in our society. It has always been my personal belief that equality for one person is equality for all and have always regarded my work more than just a job but my own civic duty to inspire positive social change one conversation at a time.”
Sparking Change with Dil is available on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and all other podcast apps, as well as HeadStuff.org/Dil
