The Way We Roll
Affirmative model, vaccinations and problematic parakeets (again!)
Feb 12, 2021 Season 2

Two jabs Phil has had both vaccinations to protect him from Covid-19. How has it changed him? Is he wild and free at last or staying in with the windows closed? 

Never one to miss a debate about one of the models of disability, Simon asks Phil what does he think of the ‘affirmative model’. Is this the answer to the charity/tragedy model of disability? If it’s valid, how can it become useful? Stick with this one as it gets a little silly at the end. You can also watch us discuss this, with extra material edited from the podcast, via our YouTube channel, link below. 

Phil is parroting on about those pesky parakeets again but feels vindicated now BBC Radio 4 have started talking about them too. There’s also another look at what life might be like post-pandemic and what will we relish returning to our lives.
