    #29 - Em Carey

    Our most requested guest to date! This episode Dylan Alcott and Angus O’Loughlin talk to Em Carey aka ’The Girl That Fell From The Sky’ here’s a tiny piece of her story with disability:"Isn’t it crazy how life is one thing and then in a single moment it becomes something entirely different. That’s how it happened for me anyway. Here I was, Emma, the girl who loves to run and travel the world and whose biggest worry is what I was having for dinner that night, and then in an instant… everything is changed. A freak skydiving accident is what did it for me. I was falling to what I presumed would be my death but instead I landed to the realisation that I was completely paralysed from the waist down."How can she have the same diagnosis as Dylan but live two completely different physical lives? It’s all explained in this episode of ListenABLE

    #24 - Jade O’Connell

    When Dylan Alcott and Angus O’Loughlin read the headline: “Airline rejects passenger with Tourette’s from flight” - we immediately knew we had to talk to the person involved, and find out what happened, and how they felt about their disability making headlines around the world.

    Who we discovered was the hilarious and authentic Jade O’Connell, a young woman with a social media following of millions! Jade has embraced her disability, and shares her life with Tourettes in a glass half full, inclusive and hilarious way!She may not physically be able to fly at the moment due to a current legal issue, but that won’t stop her star soaring to new heights.

    Disclaimer: This episode gives Jade her authentic voice and isn’t censored so some people may find some of the language a little too colourful for their taste.
