Ouch! talk show 91: Taser, tablets and travel
Ian Macrae, Rob Crossan, Liz Carr and Steve Day
The blind man mistakenly tasered by police and superstorm Sandy are the stories under discussion. Plus, how computer tablets are making a difference and the wheelchair-using traveller Zach Anner tells us about his new YouTube show launched since leaving Oprah's network. Liz Carr and Rob Crossan present.
Guests on the programme include deaf comedian Steve Day and visually impaired editor of Disability Now, Ian Macrae.
Listen out for the feature on tablet computers, part of our Technology and Disabled People series this month.
