An amazing podcast

I don’t even know where to start with saying how much I love this podcast. As someone with a disability I can relate to so much of what’s talked about. I love Alice and Lucy’s style of conversation and how open they are. Edit: I’m even more in love with this podcast since the pride episodes and the maysoon episode!

Crushing all reality ,

Never a boring moment!

I love this podcast, the hosts are great! My mood is always picked up when I listen to them and always find myself laughing with them!

Camelia.8 ,

The perfect combination of funny, relatable and educational!

I thought I’d already reviewed this but apparently not. Either way, it’s a brilliant podcast, as a disabled person I find parts of it incredibly relatable, but at the same time some of the interviews and history lessons are eye opening (which is ironic since I’m blind). But everyone should listen because it’s great!
