BBC Ouch! is a chatty disability focused programme/podcast and the current episode is a chronic illness "takeover" by pwme Catherine Hale of our Chronic Illness Inclusion Project and Natasha Lipman of Spoonie Pyjama Party.


Listen now: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05c3xrb

Hopefully it will be useful for the wider disability community to understand our day to day circumstances a bit better.

Catherine can be found at: @octoberpoppy or @chronicinclude on Twitter (this is sometimes me instead), and the project is www.inclusionproject.org.uk

Natasha is @natashalipman on Twitter and http://spooniepyjamaparty.com/
