Parties, picnics, and protesting atop the fourth plinth of Trafalgar Square…
This is all in a day in the life of 94-year-old Gwynneth Pedler, who joins Katie for this episode. They take the DLR from Canary Wharf to Bank for a cultured afternoon at the Guildhall Art Gallery, and – despite their seventy year age difference, find much to bond over. They swap stories of patience, hope, and the disadvantages of being at wheelchair “bottom” height when out at pubs!
Produced and hosted by Katie Pennick, brought to you by Transport for All.
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.
