The podcast answering questions about what it's like to live with a disability

Website column background

Did you know that 1 in 5 Australians have a disability? Yet many people don't believe they know anyone with a disability. 

Hi, I'm Peta Hooke. Think of me as your friendly girl next door who has a disability. 

I have Cerebral Palsy and I was tired of being asked by strangers on the street "What happened to you?'

So I created The I Can't Stand Podcast. 
To not only answer questions about living with a disability but also to bring in amazing disabled guests to hear what life is like for them.
