The Phil & Simon Show

For the next few weeks, our show will be weekly, shorter and have guests. At last, we hear you cry! We decided we wanted to hear the voice of disabled people during the Covid-19 crisis, hear news and policy as it affects us, and some humour to spread some light. 


Former BBC journalist Geoff Adams-Spink gives us the latest news, about the new legislation and where disabled people fit. He talks about the concerns for those who use PAs/carers. There are some top tips about maintaining good mental health too.

Broadcaster, disability campaigner and all-round glam person, Sam Renke tells us about her first two weeks in self-isolation. She talks about keeping busy, being creative, eating and maintaining some sort of routine.

Top stand up and occasional Abnormally Funny person, Steve Day, finishes the show with his topical humour and funny observations. Let us know what you think. Any ideas you’d like to hear?
