Richard Herring: the Wheelchair

I am an avid podcast person. In the car or walking the dogs, I listen to comedy shows such as Wait Wait, Dont Tell Me, The Now Show, The Moth, News Quiz, to name a few. 

Lately BBC has been picking shows for Friday night play, and I just heard Richard Herrings' the Wheelchair. It is a Morality Play, (which I just looked up and now am convinced it is accurate). 

It was a touching look at the way normal citizens react to being suddenly in the presence of the disabled. Amusing and apt, he puts himself in positions where he experiences doubt and then guilt and ponders over society's outlook on the issue. 

Really worth a listen. I suspect, however ,that this will disappear in a matter of weeks.
