The Phil & Simon Show
A new show with the usual push and pull as Simon and Phil grapple with the world of disability. Phil noticed a London hospital was getting grief for charging blue badge holders (disabled people) for visitor parking. Phil asks, well why not? Resilience is a buzz word, particularly in the field of mental health, so called ‘snowflakes’ and Millennials. Simon was recently asked by an HR recruiter, is it ok to put the word ‘resilience’ in a job ad? Prime Minister Boris Johnson has written to all government departments to ask them to re-look at how they can remove disabling barriers and help unleash the talent of disabled people currently excluded. A refreshing proclamation of leadership or an all too familiar refrain? Where does stammering and stuttering sit within the world of disability? Is it covered by the legislation, a natural fit within the social model? A new book called ‘Stammering: Pride and Prejudice’ allows Phil and Simon to look at the topic.A hearty Listeners Corner (messages from you) rounds off another bumper show.
