This week’s recommendation is an episode of Past Imperfect with Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.

“Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson is a 16 time Paralympic medallist and now sits as a Cross Bench Independent Peer in the House of Lords. Rachel and Alice visit Tanni in the Palace of Westminster to talk to her about growing up with spina bifida and overcoming derogatory comments from strangers in the street as a child to become one of Team GB’s most decorated Paralympians.”

Why did you recommend this podcast?

“As we celebrate hosting the first British Fencing Senior National Championships combining both able-bodied and para fencing disciplines, it felt appropriate to reflect on the life story of one of TeamGBs most successful Paralympian and consider how we can create more inclusive and welcoming opportunities for people with disabilities to access sport.”


Every week a member of the BF Team will recommend a podcast. The subject matter will vary (but will be related to sport!) so we hope that over the weeks there will be something for all our members, no matter where their interest or involvement in fencing lies.
