Every month, Rob Crossan and Liz Carr present the programme you didn’t know you wanted to hear. It's disability from a fresh angle featuring interviews, discussion and the occasional quiz. The (disabled) presenters dissect and analyse with interest and a good dose of healthy humour. You could say “it's a disability thing”. Read the accompanying blog at www.bbc.co.uk/ouch.
