The Phil & Simon Show No 19 - guest Baroness Jane Campbell

Feb 21, 10:43 AM

Hello, everyone and welcome to our 19th show.

If you're involved in disability, you will have likely heard of Baroness Jane Campbell. A hugely talented and admired person, she's a disability rights campaigner, writer and for the last ten years an independent peer in the House of Lords. As our guest in this intimate, sometimes funny conversation, she discusses her childhood, going to special school and the barriers she faced as a University student. She talks of the light bulb moment when she understood disability and its impact on her and the world. With her unique insight being in the Lords, she shares her thoughts on Brexit and its potential impact on disabled peoples rights. She reveals how she's become a fine negotiator, what she does in her spare time, and when she retires, her plans for world travel…once she has made planes more accessible.

We think it is a special show and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.
