#539 Longing for Home – Signal Boost Stories

This week we’re bringing you stories from The Wheeler Centre’s Signal Boost programme, supported by the Ian Potter Foundation. Find out more at www.wheelercentre.com/signalboost.

Daltabyo (Nostalgia)

Told from the view of five Somalis now in Australia, our first story illustrates the diversity in Somali diaspora. By sharing unique migration journeys and relationships to heritage, it’s a reminder that people from the same cultural background are not a homogeneous entity.   

Sound effects from Free Sound Dot Org and Music from Free Music Archive

Produced by Najma Sambul. Supervising producer Karishma Luthria.

I’ll Dink You Home

Then, Miks speaks with his late father Ken who was diagnosed with dementia. Together they explore the lasting impacts of memories from childhood and how sometimes the smallest stories have the most impact, as they shape and live on through family.

Produced by Michael Everitt.
