Bridgford, the show focuses on improving all of our understandings of ourselves and each other.

(Un)marginalised: S1, E5 with Julie G.
In this week’s episode, I laugh hard many times, and discuss serious topics, including dating with a disability, body hair, hiding, growing up poor and disabled, inclusion versus token accessibility, pedicure, and so much more.
“I find that my mental health is cranky...the accessibility isn’t done gratefully...places are not happy to invite the disabeld...there’s a ramp, so what more do they want?...I still feel unwanted...I guess you don’t want my money, and I spend a lot.” - Julie G. on the (Un)marginalised podcast.
(Un)marginalised: S1, E4 with Pascha.
In this episode Pascha and I talk about self-acceptance and ableism, food addictions, antisemitism, solidarity between marginalised groups, two sizes of shoes and so much more. “Even though I don't practice, I’m still ethnically Jewish and these people want me dead...when we see somebody... storming our capital in an Auschwitz sweatshirt, scares the shit out of me...My hope is that we have enough allies... that those of us who are at that kind of disadvantage can sort of all bind together now, and create a very united front, and strong front against the hate” - Pascha on the (Un)marginalised podcast.
(Un)marginalised: S1, E3 with Sue.
In this episode, Sue and I talk about perinatal anxiety and depression, medical racism, mother’s day, proofreading our external identities, and so much more. “My culture is very patriarchal, and it’s all right for men to engage in self care but the woman... self care is a big leap for a woman. Whereas for men, it’s just something they do… We come from a collective culture, and we’re so enmeshed into this, family and sometimes wider society as well, and we tend to lose a sense of who we are… And I love the way Australians look after themselves...that’s amazing about Australia, because I think it’s a country where people stay forever young.” - Sue on the (Un)marginalised podcast.
(Un)marginalised: S1, E2 with Emily McIntyre
CW: ableism, inspiration porn, COVID 19. In this first ever interview, Emily and I are talking about Paralympics, books, the education system, covid life and more.
After carefully listening. A podcast showing both the attitude to the different person as well as the importance of integration in order not to fight for the obvious e.g., be part of the equal society.
This was also our approach as Liel’s parents and it definitely looks like some of it was endowered for which i am very happy.
In general, your message is a real public opinion designer and this is not easy to be for any one.
I wish you a great success
