Mik Scarlet How We Got Here

    • Society & Culture

Sex, drugs, and rock’n’rolling down an escalator in a wheelchair…

This week we’re hopping on the Thameslink from St Pancras to London Bridge with the broadcaster/journalist/access + inclusion expert Mik Scarlet, and heading to a pub for a cheeky half pint.

Mik describes what train travel looked like as a New-Romantic-wheelchair-user in the 80s – when trains weren’t accessible and he had to be carried across the tracks and thrown into the guards van.

We also talk internalised ableism, how music and Sci-Fi cinema helped him out of depression, and how he found unlikely sex advice from lesbian women…

Produced and hosted by Katie Pennick, bought to you by Transport for All.

CW: Very strong language, sex, brief mention of suicidal thoughts
