Being in a mental health crisis is an already distressing experience, yet for hundreds of patients the situation is made worse when sent away from home for treatment due to a lack of beds. Experts call it an "inhumane" practice which was meant to stop in 2021, so why is it still happening? American singer, Lizzo, made headlines around the world when an ableist slur featured on her latest track, Grrrls. Nikki Fox and Emma Tracey get to grips with what that really means and the impact such insults have had over the years. And actor Arthur Hughes, whose credits include Then Barbara Met Alan and The Archers, talks about becoming the first disabled actor to play the ultimate (disabled!) villain, Richard III, for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Produced by Beth Rose, Keiligh Baker and Alix Pickles Recorded and mixed by Dave O'Neill The editors were Damon Rose and Jonathan Aspinwall
