In this first episode (which we recorded long before the podcast became a reality) my wife Amy asks me questions about my own brain injury.
It is also a taster of what will come in future episodes, as I use similar questions to interview other brain injury survivors.
In this episode we speak to Lewis from Headway Gloucestershire. It seemed only fitting Lewis is our first episode as he was our first ever interviewee. What made it much easier is Lewis is actually a friend of mine from my own Headway experience, so this was a great way to start our Podcast journey.
In this episode we interview Jackie from Headway Gloucestershire, who is very honest about her experience overcoming her brain injury. She gives some great advice and honest opinions.
In episode 4 we interview Lee from Headway North West London. Lee's injury has affected his speech but he has triumphed over this to bring you some amazing insights into thriving after a brain injury.
In this episode we interview Carly from Headway North West London, who made them laugh throughout their entire visit! She is honest and open and loves to crack jokes and make people laugh, a pure delight to talk to.
In this episode, we interview Joe from Headway North West London, who is cool, calm and collected. His voice is so smooth and he gives some amazing advice on how to accept becoming 'A New Me'.
