Politics, parliament and Paralympic athletes…
In this episode we take a noisy Jubilee Line train from Bond Street to Westminster, as we are tagging along on Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson’s commute to her place of work – the House of Lords! Parliament was pro-rogued that morning but luckily for this podcast Peers are still allowed in…!
Tanni tells Katie how Brexit has been getting in the way of her train journeys, how her excessive tweeting resulted in a concerned phone call from her sister, and what her advice would be to young disabled people wanting to make a change.

More on How We Got Here
The podcast that interviews notable disabled people as they take a journey on public transport.
Representing us in Parliament, serving as a staple of London’s punk nightlife scene, contributing to academia… We – disabled people – are here. Loudly and brilliantly existing in public spaces. This what makes accessible transport so important.
This is a podcast about movement, progression and change. Stories about activism, protests, and chaining wheelchairs to buses. Disability rights have come a long way in the UK, and we’ll learn just how far there is to go.
