Read the transcript

Mat Fraser and Liz Carr dive head-long into 2009 with a cracking January Podcast. Thalidomider Sue Kent joins them in the studio to massage one of the team with her feet. Rob Crossan rocks up with his slant on disability news - plus, being a travel writer with albinism, he expresses concern about a spate of killings in Africa of people with the condition. Presents and resolutions, ill-fitting slippers and the New Year Honours list all get the Carr and Fraser treatment. And the presenters' disability knowledge is stretched to the limit with this month's Veg, Veg or Veg.
