4OFUS EPISODE 1: DISABILITY – NINA GILLIGAN & RICHARD CURRIE

Welcome to 4ofUs, part of our new online and digital content. Join Lucy Burke, (Co Investigator at D4D & Principal Lecturer at MMU) and Smug Roberts (Actor, Comedian and Broadcaster) as they host an intimate chat show for the socially distanced…

Our two hosts meet two special guests to talk about life, lockdown and their hopes and fears for the future. Dialing in from their homes and workplaces, these are the stories that rarely make the news.

Each episode features people whose work or personal experiences have placed them at the heart of an unfolding global crisis. They might be the people most at risk from Coronavirus, from medical staff on the frontline to carers and teachers. Or the people whose lives and work have been disrupted or transformed forever.

EPISODE 1: DISABILITY This episode Lucy and Smug are joined by Richard Currie, Disability Activist and PhD Student at MMU and Nina Gilligan, Comedian & Ex Probation Service Worker, talking about life in lockdown, disability and their own personal experiences.
