How did he manage all of it? He didn't over inflate his lifestyle and he poured everything he could into tackling his goal until it was accomplished.

Also with me is Kathryn McPhillips, from Help - an organisation that supports Aucklanders who have been sexually abused and is one of the podcast's partners.

Brooke meets Rachel Charlton-Dailey, a writer and activist, to talk about their experiences and perspectives on disability. They discuss the importance of using the term "disabled" as an umbrella term that encompasses various disabilities, the impact of medical misogyny on disabled women, and the lack of guidelines in the media for writing about disability. Rachel also shares their journey of embracing their disabilities and using their platform to raise awareness and advocate for change., highlighting the need for accurate and inclusive representation of disability in the media to challenge stereotypes and promote understanding. Rachel Charlton-dailey is a freelance journalist and campaigner specialising in disability rights and disability in media. She is a columnist for the daily mirror and the founder of the unwritten. Her first children's book Ruby Hastings Writes Her Own Story is out with Harper Collins on January 8th KEY TAKEAWAYS The media needs clear guidelines for writing about disability: The lack of guidelines in the media leads to inaccurate and harmful portrayals of disability. Clear guidelines would help educate writers and ensure more accurate and respectful representation. Disabled voices are often excluded: Disabled people are often left out of conversations and decision-making processes regarding disability. Their perspectives and experiences are crucial in shaping narratives and policies related to disability. Disability is often portrayed in extremes: Media narratives about disability tend to focus on extremes, either portraying disabled individuals as heroes who have overcome their disabilities or as helpless victims. This binary representation fails to capture the diverse experiences and realities of disabled people. Disability benefits are essential for leveling the playing field: Disability benefits, such as PIP (Personal Independence Payment), are crucial for addressing the extra costs and challenges that disabled individuals face. These benefits help level the playing field and provide necessary support. BEST MOMENTS "It's very interesting when particularly around disability is that people think you owe them an explanation of your disability... But more often than not it is that that people just expect everything from you... It comes down to people just being really nosy and thinking that they're entitled to know all of these things." "It's that reinforcement that we've had in society through media, through everything, through the way that we interact with disability. It starts literally when babies are in the womb... It's like, well, what if they're not healthy though? Are you going to change your mind about your baby when you discover that they're not healthy?" "The amount that this government just let disabled people die because they didn't care about us is like... I literally had to just go, no, I'm done here. I'm fucking done here." "It's just so much, so much of what we do is for, is supposed to fit into non-disabled life, that disabled narratives are missing so much... Disabled people think that they can tell them... I can always tell nine times out of ten when a non-disabled person has written a story about a disability." VALUABLE RESOURCES https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/disabled-and-proud/id1621152878 HOST BIO Disabled and Proud is the show that brings listeners a different perspective on disability.

How employers can assist employees with sight or hearing loss to succeed In this episode 217 of the podcast I bring you an interview with Dan Williams who is the founder of Visualise Training and Consultancy an organisation which promotes and enables inclusion, accessibility and equality for people living with visual impairment, hearing loss and other forms of disability. Dan is an expert in assisting businesses and organisations to be more accessible. In this episode of the podcast we cover: How to encourage employees to be open about their condition or disability. Creating an inclusive culture at work. Ways in which employers can make reasonable adjustments for those with sight and hearing loss. Why it is important to give meaningful consideration to adjustments. Some examples of how employers can make a change and be more inclusive. Dan Williams “I established Visualise in 2014 with assistance from The Prince's Trust. As someone who experienced gradual sight loss, I wanted to advance social change for VI (visual Impairment) rights by campaigning and advocating for inclusion, accessibility, equality and diversity. As a qualified eye clinic liaison officer and rehabilitation assistant, and with the help of my guide dog, Zodiac, I carry out workplace assessments to support employees with visual impairments. I deliver training that educates staff to better assist clients or customers with VI. Visualise has worked with over 700 organisations across all sectors. When employees are ‘VI Confident', inclusion becomes ‘business as usual' for everyone involved, leading to increased job satisfaction and a more rewarding environment. I also deliver ‘Seeing Beyond the Eyes' CET workshops to foster closer links between the optical and sight loss sectors to benefit patients. In a voluntary capacity, I'm on the RNIB Working Age and Transitions steering groups which assesses work-related challenges blind and partially sighted people face. I'm also a Young Ambassador for the Prince's Trust and sit on their business launch panels, helping other young people to set up enterprises. I'm a member of the College of Optometrists' Public Patients Reference Group (PPRG), which receives input from patients and the public to improve policies, guidance and patient resources. I am also an active Trustee for The Nystagmus Network charity. In the beginning, sight loss feels like the end, but later, you realise it's just the start of seeing differently and having a new outlook on life. Overcoming challenges has given me resilience, determination and the ambition needed to strive for success. This can also be said of other disabilities, whether they are visible or invisible. We are here to take away the confusion and myths and replace these with solid information that will give you the confidence to interact and welcome those with disabilities into your working environment.” If you'd like to know more about how your organisation can become more Disability Confident and Aware, please email me at email@example.com Or give me a call on 07472305268 Together we can make a difference.” About Visualise Visualise Training and Consultancy ltd are on a mission to improve inclusion and accessibility for people with disabilities. Our Founder, Daniel Williams, has an eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa, which means he is gradually losing his sight. Daniel established the consultancy in 2014 to share his experience and expertise with companies and organisations. This enables them to provide excellent service for customers and employees alike while meeting their legal obligations under The Equality Act 2010. What began as a laser-sharp focussed approach centred on sight-loss impairment and its associated elements has since organically grown to encompass other disabilities such as hearing loss in an ever more significant effort for Visualise to truly become a symbol of total inclusivity. They work with people of all ages and all abilities, including: Disabled people, Veterans, People who experience loneliness, People who need more supportive exercise.

Multi gold medal winning Paralympic wheelchair athlete Tanni Grey-Thompson examines 50 years of changing attitudes to disability around the world. When Tanni was a child in the 1970s in Wales becoming an athlete with spina bifida was far from guaranteed. There was no support for her parents bringing up a disabled child and education for children with disabilities was minimal. Over the years Tanni's suffered discrimination including when she was pregnant being offered a termination. “This woman said: ‘How did you get pregnant?' says Tanni. In this programme Tanni reflects on experiences over her lifetime as she meets others who've had similar journeys in India, Pakistan, Ghana, Nigeria, Brazil and New Zealand. With Abha Khetarpal in India, Tanni reflects on several shared experiences. They both had scoliosis and use a wheelchair and faced early challenges at school - Abha having to be home schooled. Meanwhile Lois Auta in Nigeria also uses a wheelchair. She was born in 1980 and tells Tanni how she managed to challenge the status quo and stand for parliament. ‘Disability is seen in our country as something that happens through witch craft'. And Lois, who now acts as an advocate for women with disabilities says those prejudices still exist. She meets BBC war correspondent Frank Gardner who tells her how he adapted to becoming disabled after being injured during his work in a war zone in the Middle East.
The Stimpunks Foundation exists for the direct support and mutual aid of neurodivergent and disabled people. Oftentimes that can look as simple as just giving people cash, as studies have shown that no strings attached financial aid is one of the most effective ways to prop up individuals in need. […]
“The account you inherit as far as the IRS is concerned, it's not your retirement account. You are just receiving the money from it. It's still the original owner's retirement account.” Have you ever considered the complexities that come with inheriting retirement accounts? They can be a minefield of rules and regulations that, if not handled with care, can result in irreversible mistakes. Our hosts Stephanie McCullough and Kevin Gaines untangle these complex rules, shedding light on the importance of paying attention when dealing with inherited accounts. Because once that money is taken out, it doesn't go back in. They also look at how the rules change when the original contributor has started their required distributions. Did you know that spouses have a unique privilege when inheriting retirement accounts? They can transfer the accounts into their own and take full ownership. But like everything else in life, there are rules to follow. And then comes the all-important matter of tax considerations. From the repercussions of not emptying the account within ten years to the importance of naming your own beneficiaries, and the complications that arise when inheriting an inherited IRA - Stephanie and Kevin cover it all. That said, it's important to remember that each situation is unique and requires specific guidance. Under the SECURE Act, there are now 3 kinds of retirement plan beneficiaries for determining post-death payouts after 2019: 1. Non-Designated Beneficiary (NDB) These are not people. Examples: Estate, charity or non-qualifying trust (non-look through trust) 2. Non-Eligible Designated Beneficiary (NEDB) All designated beneficiaries who do not qualify as EDBs (see #3 below). Examples: grandchildren, older children, some look-through trusts 3. Eligible Designated Beneficiary (EDB) The SECURE Act exempts these beneficiaries from the 10-year rule. However, if the account owner dies before the RBD, an EDB can elect the 10-year rule. EDBs must be designated beneficiaries. 5 Classes of Eligible Designated Beneficiaries: Surviving spouses Minor children of the account owner, until age 21 - but not grandchildren Disabled individuals – under the strict IRS rules Chronically ill individuals Individuals not more than 10 years younger than the IRA owner. (Those older than the IRA owner also qualify.)

Brooke welcomes guest Warren Stapley to discuss a wide range of topics, including disability, LGBTQ+ issues, and the importance of inclusive language. Warren shares his personal experiences as a person with a hearing impairment and his journey navigating the corporate world as a disabled individual. They delve into the challenges faced by disabled children in school settings and the impact of internalised ableism. Warren also opens up about his decision to transition from a corporate career to working in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), where he now uses his unique perspective and intersectional lens to facilitate conversations and challenge societal norms. KEY TAKEAWAYS It's important to use accurate and respectful language when referring to disability. There is an ongoing need for disability awareness and inclusion in educational settings. Warren reflects on his own journey of accepting and embracing his disability, and encourages others to challenge and overcome internalised ableism. Warren's experiences as a disabled person in the corporate world informed his decision to pursue DEI work, where he can leverage his differences and advocate for marginalised communities. There is a need to address racism and other forms of oppression within the DEI field, and a comprehensive approach to DEI that includes race, gender, disability, and other intersecting identities. BEST MOMENTS "I'm not a fan of this sort of narrative around differently abled, and I'm not a fan of calling my disability a superpower." "Less abled absolutely will not do. It's sending the message that you're not disabled, you're simply less than." "I think if someone outside of who was involved in it had consulted, you might have got a different answer and a different response." "I was able to leverage certain privileges that I had, chiefly my whiteness and my maleness." VALUABLE RESOURCES https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/disabled-and-proud/id1621152878 Disabled and Proud is the show that brings listeners a different perspective on disability. Each week this podcast highlights an awesome disabled guest speaking about their own disability; why they are proud to be disabled and why they are proud to be themselves. The conversations in this show will look at what challenges these amazing people face socially, mentally, physically and life in general. This show is raw, open, honest, funny, welcoming and educational. Disabled & Proud does exactly what it says on the tin! And whilst we are creating this space for disabled people to be unashamedly themselves, without the need to conform to society, this is also not about toxic positivity. This show will be shining a big, bright light on disability without it being “Paralympic or pity”. As you will hear disability is WHOLE, COMPLETE & PERFECT and whilst the topic of disability can be quite heavy - and we definitely don't shy away from the bad days - this podcast is also about having fun too! Our aim is to play a part in reclaiming the word disability - turning it from inadequacy to perfection!INSTAGRAM! https://www.instagram.com/disabledandproudpodcast/?hl=en: https://www.instagram.com/disabledandproudpodcast/?hl=enThis show was brought to you by Progressive Media

Why does my partner make me feel invisible? What exactly is intimacy anorexia? What to Do if You Are Not Feeling Heard in a Relationship? Not feeling heard in a relationship – What are the causes? Agree or Disagree? Invisibility, on the other hand, refers to feeling unnoticed, overlooked, or undervalued within your marriage/relationship. It can manifest in various ways, such as your opinions and needs being disregarded, or a lack of acknowledgment or appreciation for your contributions. When you feel invisible, it can erode your sense of self-worth and lead to a diminished sense of importance in the relationship. Agree or disagree? It may stem from a lack of emotional intimacy or a sense of not being understood or heard. This can lead to a profound sense of isolation, as if you're navigating the ups and downs of life on your own, despite being in a committed relationship. True or false? Ultimately, not feeling heard in a relationship is the result of your partner simply not listening, or appearing to not listen to you, when you share your feelings or concerns. Agree or Disagree? Listening to your partner requires being present in a relationship, and there are several reasons that can explain why your partner doesn't seem to listen: 1. Have you considered the possibility that your partner may have their own unresolved emotional issues that prevent them from fully engaging in the relationship and truly hearing you? 2. Could it be that your partner lacks the necessary communication skills to effectively listen and understand your perspective? 3. Is it possible that your partner is preoccupied with their own thoughts, worries, or concerns, making it difficult for them to fully focus on you and your needs? 4. Have you explored the idea that your partner may have a fear of intimacy or vulnerability, which causes them to shut down and not fully engage in conversations? 5. Could it be that your partner has developed a defensive mechanism to protect themselves from emotional pain, leading them to dismiss or ignore your feelings? 6. Have you considered the impact of past experiences on your partner's ability to listen and be present in the relationship? Could they have unresolved trauma or attachment issues that affect their ability to connect with you? 7. Is it possible that your partner has developed unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as avoidance or withdrawal, which prevent them from actively listening and engaging in meaningful conversations? 8. Have you explored the role of power dynamics in your relationship? Is there a possibility that your partner's lack of listening stems from a desire to maintain control or dominance? 9. Could it be that your partner has different communication styles or preferences, and they may not fully understand the importance of active listening in a relationship? 10. Have you considered the possibility that your partner may have a different perception of what it means to be heard in a relationship? Are their expectations and needs different from yours?
CW: References to self-harm. In this episode we're joined by Dr. Isaac T. Soon, who is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Crandall University in New Brunswick, and the author of A Disabled Apostle: Impairment and Disability in the Letters of Paul (published by Oxford University Press). Drawing upon the cultural model of disability, Dr. Soon explains that Paul likely had three kinds of disabilities, in terms of how these conditions were stigmatized in the ancient world, including: demonic oppression, circumcision, and dwarfism. Team members on the episode from The Two Cities include: Dr. John Anthony Dunne, Dr. Grace Emmett, and Dr. Grace Sangalang Ng.
**This episode was originally released in June of 2021. I am re-releasing it due to the recent arrest of Lisa Jo Vanderlinden, the woman who spent less than a year in jail for Lucas's murder, on charges of abusing another child.**In 2017, Lucas Call and his baby sister were removed from their biological mother's custody, in part because she had a learning disability and was unjustly deemed an unfit mother. They were placed in the care of a woman who had previously fostered upwards of 40 children. She was also a trained nurse who worked with the county government's child abuse investigation team. Sixteen months later, in August of 2018, that woman called 911, reporting 2-year-old Lucas was unresponsive.After Lucas's death was deemed a homicide caused by blunt force trauma, his foster mother, Lisa Jo Vanderlinden, was charged with his murder. After accepting a plea agreement, Lisa, who claimed to accept responsibility for Lucas's death but never confessed to causing his injuries, received a sentence so shockingly inadequate that many have called for the judge's removal from his position.In this episode, I'll tell you Lucas's story, and you'll also hear my interview with Lucas's great-grandma, Peggy Thompson, who shared with me her anger over the injustice of Lucas's case, as well as some of her fondest memories of this sweet little boy. This is the infuriating story of Lucas Call.
