Hallo, welcome, and Thank you SO MUCH for joining us for the first of 3 eps on EPILEPSY focusing on the wonderous Lucy Shirley, who - if you've been listening along, plays the often hilarious Rachel in our Audio Fiction, and has in her real life been dealing with epilepsy since childhood.
I have to point out at this juncture BLACK LIVES MATTER & TRANS LIVES MATTER to us at Quirky Voices VERY MUCH...I work and play with folks from all of these wonderous communities and, well, I have really been overwhelmed by the sadness and tragedy concerning Civil and Trans rights, my workload and world events and that of things closer to home as well as my own health of late, and so we had an unexpected mini break - to hopefully also leave room for other voices as well as find our own - but we're ever so gently & calmly back & woah have we got some eps for you!...I would LOVE to hear from anyone in the Trans and or Black communities who want to share their experiences of these conditions with us too >firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks also to our medical professional Matthew Walker whose list of job titles is longer than my body(!) and works in many fields of public facing research and development in epilepsy. I appreciate very very much Matthew and Lucy's input into these next few episodes, and I'm sure you will too!
