In this podcast Liz talks about the early battles. The hard campaigns fought just for disabled people to be heard. Let alone to win political and legal gains. It wasn't easy, quick or simple. But the original activists did it. Disabled people eventually got their legislative protection - the Equalities Act 2012 as it is now.

Kicking the Kyriarchy Episode 11: Clothing

We are used to clothing defining us. You only have to pick up most mainstream magazines to be told that the brand, the fabric, the cut of the clothing and how you wear it make an instant impression.

In the new episode of 'Into It', the team is debating whether the idea of a TV watershed is outdated, in light of the complaints from 'Emmerdale' viewers over a polarising rape scene which aired earlier this week.

Ruth Owen - Transport And Individual Responsibility

It's not so surprising to hear the take away was 'we've come far, but there's a long way to go'. However getting everyone together was very important. For disabled people to understand industry, and industry to understand disabled transport users. The solutions began flowing.

Kicking The Kyriarchy Episode 10: Trans

Elena Guthrie | Posted 05.04.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Elena Guthrie

"... So, how do you have sex?" Inappropriate, right? Being a Brit, there are few things we are more prude-ish about than discussing our sex lives, and yet, this is a question that many people think is okay to ask trans people. Why? It's probably got something to do with society seeing trans identities as a novelty, and therefore not legitimate

Phil Friend - Difference Is Your Asset

So I figured why not get Phil and his motivating, kind, and helpful nature out there. As a podcast guest I could ask him other questions, relevant for you. The listeners. Plus I'd probably learn a whole load more myself. Which I did.

Into It

In this week's 'Into It', the team pick apart the two biggest announcements of the week: one shockin (Noel Fielding stepping into Mel and Sue's presenting shoes on 'Great British Bake Off') and one not-so-shocking (Ed Sheeran headlining at this year's Glastonbury).

Kicking The Kyriarchy Episode 09: Relationships

Elena Guthrie | Posted 05.03.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Elena Guthrie

Did things end well? Or not so well, and you explain the animosity by declaring that they were 'out of their mind', 'crazy' or 'unhinged'? This kind of language is harmful and enormously disrespectful of people with mental health problems, so we wouldn't normally use it - but here it's important to use those labels.

I'm willing to bet that if you are reading this, you have been affected by cancer. I wish that I knew this because of some startling powers of deduction. However, the sad truth is that cancer is incredibly common.

There Is A Cure For The Blues After All

I have to admit, before meeting Ian, I wasn't entirely clear on what music therapy actually involved. Luckily, I wasn't the only one. Ian rather candidly admitted that he had always assumed that music therapy was just kids "banging on drums". He had no concept of the service being available for people who were professional musicians and was initially reluctant to go to the sessions.

This Man Wore A Nametag For 16 Years, And Learned To Trust Himself

It might not be immediately obvious why I chose to interview Scott when exploring the theme of instinct and intuition for the series. However, as Scott explains, soon after he started the experiment, he realised that wearing a nametag was beginning to affect him on both a psychological and physiological level.

Why We Absolutely Have to Talk About Drugs

Jason Reed | Posted 22.04.2017 | UK Entertainment
Jason Reed

Having worked on many projects, from organisations, writing outlets, films, I've seen just how inspired members of the public can be when faced with the cold realities of 'the drug war'. As soon as the realism of the issue is addressed - over the conceptual political soundbites - we begin the process of communal conversation.

Being in the Smug Set

Karen Hall

In my role as fully paid-up member of the smug set, I like to empower parents and share information and strategies that they can use to make decisions that feel right for them at the time. I don't believe that having a good birth is the luck of the draw, but nor do I believe that your baby's mode of exit is really cause for smugness of any kind.

Finding a podcast is a world away from discovering more traditional content, such as a radio show. Discovering a podcast is like finding someone who speaks to you, the individual, personally; it is that immediacy and that intimacy that makes it such a potent experience.
