Honest and inspiring conversations, and stories of overcoming extraordinary adversity.
Military veterans who have suffered loss of sight or use of limbs speak to figures from public life. We hear their stories, their struggles, and how resilience was crucial in their most difficult days.

The Resilience Sessions has been inspired by Making Generation R – a campaign which aims to create a generation of resilient people across the U.K. The series is brought to you by Blesma, the limbless veterans charity, and is based on an original idea by Simon Harmer and The Drive Project. The Resilience Sessions are supported by Openreach and produced by The Drive Project.

Touching & inspiring

I have been following the activities of the Drive Project for a while and this series of podcasts they have produced with Blesma is their greatest project to date. I have listened to three of the soldiers stories in the mini-sodes and two of the podcast with Jonny Benjamin, Stewart Harris, Carol Vorderman and Si Harmer. The stories are humbling and inspiring with evidence of resilience in its purest form woven throughout their tales without any artifice or show. The conversations with the ‘celebrity’ guests are genuine, interesting and informative - the messages ‘you need to love yourself for others to love you’ and ‘live for now’ resonated strongly with me and I take them away with me to try and put them into practice for me too. Brilliant entertainment and I can’t wait for the rest of the series.

Refreshing

Maybe it’s just the cultural bubble I live in, but I’ve never heard former service members given the space to talk so openly, honestly and reflectively about their experiences. Really eye opening and life affirming. There are lessons for everyone in here about how to survive and thrive in the face of adversity (even if yours is a lot more minor than life-changing injuries!)
