    Sport

    From high-octane skiing to walking football – via table tennis lessons and golf's Pakinson's mulligan – the Movers and Shakers have plenty of experience with the world of sports. But with such a mixed ability group, are they getting the most out of the sporting offerings of the Parkinson's community? And what does taking up a sport offer, socially, in addition to the obvious fitness benefits? For this episode of Movers and Shakers, we're joined by a host of sporting luminaries, from the captain of the England Parky walking football team to a former captain of the Australian cricket team.
    Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones, Gillian Lacey-Solymar, Mark Mardell, Paul Mayhew-Archer, Sir Nicholas Mostyn and Jeremy Paxman.

    The Embarrassing Bits

    The Embarrassing Bits

    The Movers and Shakers are back in the pub and, at Paul's insistence, they're discussing the embarrassing bits of the Parkinson's experience. From issues in the bathroom to troubles in the bedroom, we'll be giving voice to the side of Parkinson's that's rarely discussed. We'll also be checking in with a couple who had a unique experience with Parkinson's medication, and we have an appearance in the pub by Paul's Parkinson's nurse, Jo.

    The Parky Charter

    The Parky Charter

    The Movers and Shakers are back in the pub to kickstart series 3! And what better way to mark this new beginning than by picking up where the last series left off: with the attempt to write a charter for Parkinson's care in the UK. The gang have been speaking to international Parkinson's groups and collating your thoughts and recommendations, and they're here to announce the BIG FIVE charter commitments that they'll be taking to Downing Street. They're also joined in the pub by Caroline Rassell, CEO of Parkinson's UK, and down-the-line by Ted Thompson of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

    Paul's DBS Journey: The Big Switch On!

    Paul's DBS Journey: The Big Switch On!

    Before season three starts next month, we wanted to bring you an update on the marvellous brain of Paul Mayhew-Archer, which is now partially electrified. At the end of last year, Paul underwent Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) a procedure that Gillian has previously undergone. Now, at the start of 2024, he's had the electrodes switched on. So what impact is the DBS having on Paul? How optimistic does he feel for the future? And what do the other Movers and Shakers make of a procedure that involves drilling into your head?

The Best

I’ve listened to lots of podcasts related to Parkinson’s- some scientific, some aiming for relevance on a personal level, some focused on possible breakthrough research. This show does it all, while sharing the very real stories/attitudes of 6 intelligent people dealing with the disease. They are often funny, always sincere, and smart enough to ask a great lineup of doctors to share their knowledge about everything from diet to mental health to healthcare systems and what’s missing in the care industry. Given the devastating effect this disease can have, I just want to thank these people for bothering to do it!! It’s a bit lifeline, a bit camaraderie, always a pleasure - and I believe I’ve learned as much or more from this show than I have from neurologists and other healthcare workers.

Movers and Shakers

Loved the positive attitude of the speakers. I am 10 years into my life with PD and got a great lift hearing the panel talking about their aliments. Keep going. Gordomcd

Funny and endearing, please fix the sound!

Love love love, I looked for a picture of you and was surprised to see you used microphones. The sound is not great and I hate missing a lot of what you share.
