Sparking Change With Dil
Courtesy of Headstuff – On this week’s episode of Sparking Change, we talk to Síofra Dempsey about the power of pronouns, and the importance (and difficulty) of challenging society’s ideas of what gender identity means.
For listeners who aren’t sure what it means to be non-binary, and who are interested in learning but are not sure where to start, Síofra and Dil discuss everything from bathrooms, to difficulties faced by queer migrants, and to how to speak to someone who has changed pronouns.
Dil also talks to Rachel Moore, a speech and language therapist at Insight Matters, and founder of Express Your Gender (xYg).
Rachel is passionate about gender diversity and expression and works with many people in the transgender community as they build confidence and self-esteem.

In this week’s episode, she tells Darach and Gearóidín about widespread misconceptions of early Irish society, honour prices of different statuses of people, the random sequence of recorded events in the annals and even how to retrofit modern words into earlier forms of Irish.

The A-Z of 1958: Episode K
If you’ve been reading our schedule over the past couple of months, you may already be aware of the fact that our Head Music Archivist, Stereo Bene, the host of this show, likes to drop little clues around the office, so that the rest of us may “guess” what the theme of his next episode will be. I’ve always presumed that he thought we didn’t know that the episodes are alphabetically themed, but lately, I’m starting to wonder if he even knows… Anyway, this week, he took the liberty of dumping all of our lunches from the staff canteen, and replaced them all with bowls of Special K. Thanks Stereo Bene. Thanks very much.

Courtesy of Headstuff – It was a tough week at HeadStuff HQ for the With Relish team, as Harry and Aoife were given the mundane task of researching The Irish Beer Industry. Meeting brewers, drinking beer and getting a hands-on lesson as how to make the aforementioned beer were just some of the exploits they had the misfortune of enduring.
