Could you be our next podcast sponsor?
The Abnormally Funny People Show is a monthly podcast discussing all things disability with a splash of comedy. Each month we welcome guests from diverse backgrounds who have a connetion to disability - they might be in entertainrment, journalists, disability advocacates, writers and more. We also have regular guests call in with latest tech and accessibility news along with news from the USA. 

The show has had a successful first eighteen months kindly sponsored by Barclays. We're now looking for a new sponsor to help us continue. It's an opportunity for your organisation to get your name out to an often neglected market as well as support a fun and engaging project. If you’re interested, please contact us at info@abnormallyfunnypeople.com. We would love to hear from you.
