The Accessible Tourism Podcast speaks with people with disabilities and people from the tourism industry about what its like travelling with a disability and what industry is/could be doing.

Travelling with a disability can be very challenging. We explore the constraints people with disabilities experience as they travel away from home. Real life experiences from people with disabilities are shared to provide an accurate picture of what it’s like to travel with a disability. People from the tourism industry also share their experience and knowledge of providing accessible experiences to people with disabilities. Each conversation finishes with an outlook on the future for people with disabilities in the tourism industry.

Hi everyone, my name is Marcus Hansen. I am an academic with expertise in accessible tourism - travelling with a disability. I started this podcast in an effort to raise awareness on this very important topic. I hope you will find the episodes interesting and useful.

Hi Josh, that's a really good point. I've had a few people comment on this. I am currently looking into that. Sort of learning on my feet! Please bear with me, but I am hoping to have a solution very soon

Hi Marcus, this is great to see! I'm an amputee who uses a prosthetic leg, and I travel the world full-time with my husband and 2 school-age children. On our blog and social channels we regularly discuss what it's like to travel with a disability, but we also find that our content appeals to others with mobility impairments, such as senior citizens, folks with joint/back issues, etc. We'll check out the podcast, would love to chat more as well.

Hi Jodie, thanks for this! Much appreciated. Yes, I completely agree - all my research indicates that being accessible to people with disabilities doesn't "just" benefit people with disabilities, but indeed goes much wider than that! I'd love to chat further with you - my email is m.h.hansen@ljmu.ac.uk. Feel free to get in touch. It'd be great to continue the conversation. All the best. Marcus
