How We Got Here
By Transport For All
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.
