Even better this week

This is a great podcast and is getting better every week. I watched Nicholas playing online and it was remarkable.

First time listener

I’ve never listened to a podcast before as I was unsure what they were being my age. This show was recommended by a friend as I am disabled myself. I loved how open it was with the issue of disability as in my day we didn’t talk about these issues. It’s nice to see a refreshing side to disability. I look forward to the next episode. I particularly liked the part of what not to say to a disabled person as I get these all the time when out in my scooter, never giggled so much for so long as they are so true. It was nice to be able to relate to the show.
I also liked the face that the presenter Simon Sanson was quick witted and open about his personal issues as many people have difficulty talking about things like that I especially liked Rosie’s comments about not being quick on the quick fire round and dribbling on the bus to get a seat, that made me laugh. I’ll be listening every week from now on.
