    OCD: It's not just about washing your hands

    When we got three women with obsessive-compulsive disorder round a table, the conversation ranged from the need to tic or twitch, and what that feels like, through to getting naked at the front door to minimise the spread of germs after a hospital visit. This "takeover" podcast was recorded in Edinburgh, the contributors - two writers and one actor - all feature in the 2018 festival Fringe: Lucy Danser, Lucy Burke and Kerry Fitzgerald.

    The bike crash which made me forget English

    Hannah Jenkins was cycling in her local park when she collided with another cyclist and fell-off her bike. She sustained a serious head injury and was rushed to hospital in a critical condition. But when she woke up, she was confused to discover no-one spoke the same language as her - and later discovered the crash had caused her brain to erase English. Presented by Beth Rose.

    If the shoe fits...

    Shoes - it’s a hot topic amongst disabled people. Buying them and wearing them can be a nightmare, especially if it means regularly wearing them out. Throughout the ages, shoes have been either practical or decorative but rarely both and we in the disabled community often have to adapt what’s on offer to suit our needs. So, why do so many of us have to pick function over fashion – and does having that choice really matter? BBC Ouch chats all things shoes to lifestyle and fashion YouTuber, Jessica Kellgren-Fozard, whose vintage style and taste for high heels often raises eyebrows in the context of her disabilities. Actor and comedian Tim Renkow also joins us in the studio. He has Cerebral Palsy but doesn’t wear shoes because, he says, they’re just not worth the hassle. Presented by Niamh Hughes with Beth Rose.

    Archbishop on daughters, disability and mental health

    The Archbishop of Canterbury and two of his daughters talk frankly about their experiences of disability and mental health and how the church can be more inclusive. In her first interview, Ellie Welby chats about her learning disability and how she can feel she's on the edge of church-life and Katherine warns that offering to pray for someone could be side-stepping a more important opportunity to talk to them about their worries. Archbishop Justin also reveals his surprising TV choices, what it was like to officiate at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and his plans for the upcoming christening of Prince Louis. Vicar of Dibley co-writer and comedy producer Paul Mayhew-Archer joins the Welby family in the studio to talk about life with Parkinson's Disease and his new Edinburgh show about it, and published author, Frasier, who's just 10-years-old, charms everyone with his book about refugees. Presented by Kate Monaghan and Simon Minty.
