The Phil & Simon Show
How often do you hear, ‘what do the young people want?’ Perhaps not often enough. Certainly not as often as ‘how things have changed since my day!’ Phil and Simon wanted to hear from the next generation so we invited the multi-talented Abbi Brown on to our show. She works for the ad agency behind the now infamous Malteser adverts on Channel 4. With Abbi we explore whether you can make more of a difference from the inside or out, who her (disabled) role models were when she was growing up and does she think there’s a disability movement these days. Indeed, what is activism these days, what are the next generation ‘fighting for’ if anything and does social media help or hinder? We also talk about using the bus and not thinking twice about it. Abbi has personal experience of disability with OI (brittle bones) deafness and mental health problems. [Click this for transcript of the show](https://www.dropbox.com/s/gm0ly6djnlrnipx/Phil%20%26%20Simon%20Show%20No%2029%20w%20Abbi%20Brown?dl=0)You can follow Abbi on -Twitter [@AbbiSigns](https://twitter.com/AbbiSigns)Instagram [abbisigns](https://www.instagram.com/abbisigns/) YouTube [Ithinkmynameismoose](https://www.youtube.com/user/ithinkmynameismoose)
