PODCAST – NHS controversy, Abigail Thorn’s play and a month in hospital

Picture of child screaming into microphone

This podcast contains descriptions of medical things, some of which are quite…invasive. So keep that in mind.

So we ain’t been doing this pod thing for a while. Part of the reason is because Ashleigh, rocking a new multiple sclerosis diagnosis, had to spend a whole month in the hospital. We get into what that is like as a trans person in a country which refuses to fund healthcare.

We also talk to the mighty Abigail Thorn of Philosophy Tube about her new play.

And that is not all…we talk about another set of total bollocks being put out by bastards around the NHS and a new initiative looking to make the NHS better for trans people.
