PODCASTS

On this page you will find a selection of podcast episodes where I've been a guest. I particularly enjoy discussing topics such as my experience with chronic illness, disability, graphic design and entrepreneurship.

I'm also available for panel discussions on topics such as inclusive employment, accessible design, and health-related communications. Are you currently studying or completing research in these areas? I've been interviewed for many dissertations and will always try to help if my energy allows. Please feel free to contact me if this is of interest.

Please note: I only agree to speaking opportunities where proof is provided that the lineup is diverse and inclusive. White, slim, cis people like myself are often overrepresented in communications, including conversations on disability. It is imperative that we actively work to dismantle this narrow narrative, it is not only inaccurate but harmful too.

I only agree to join podcasts where full transcripts are readily available for every episode, and fully-edited captions are available on all video-based promotions. This should be standard practice so that Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals have equitable access to all conversations.

The Unfixed podcast is created in collaboration between Beyond My Battle and Unfixed Media Productions, both organisations that champion the lived experience of disabled people. In this episode I talk with Stefanie Grant who blogs at Jaw and Face. We discuss how we've built communities online, balancing content creation with our poor health and the power in sharing your lived experience.

This podcast is created by Changing Faces, a UK based non-profit helping to support anyone with a mark or scar that makes them look different. In this Anti-Bullying Week episode I talk with two fellow campaigners of the charity. We discuss our experience of being bullied and harrassed for our visible difference, the impact it has had on our mental health, and provide advice that we would give to anyone else going through it.
