Episode #11: Adults Say the Funniest Things (after wine)
It's April 2015, and right before the UK general election we go on our own campaign trail with Phil Friend OBE, formerly of Disability Rights UK, now of the English Federation of Disability Sport, and James Partridge OBE from Changing Faces.
We talk about challenging low expectations of disabled people by others and when we limit ourselves, be it singing, guitar playing or performing. We wonder if the diversity of the Eurovision Song Contest contestants means it is now cutting edge. Steve tries to join the disability club (again) with his teenage acne, and Phil and Simon continue their long running debate about the perception of athletes and clowns.
Shannon Murray (also on Show #3) reports from LA where she’s now living, and Robin Christopherson gives an update on the latest tech.
Phil and Simon on FaceTime with Shannon Murray, live in LA.
