Disability, Education, Lifestyle, mental health, Politics, social media

From Sun Hill to Colgate – This podcast has it all. Funny, educational, hard hitting and informative it is a sensation with half a million views. 

 A podcast called The Grumpy Gits has hit the floor running by reaching half a million hits. 

Presented by TV Presenter and Disability Campaigner Adam Pearson the show is certainly a podcast hit.

Available on Facebook pages The Grumpy Gits, Ability Access and AudioBoom it aims to break down barriers on disability, mental health, physical disabilities and of course the stupid questions of the week.

Adam is joined by Ability Access founder and journalist Simon Sansome and The Grumpy Dads Chris Leasmith and Duncan Casburn, both SEND parents. 

The Grumpy Gits is not afraid to make fun of itself while tackling the difficult questions that need answering and discussed with a mature attitude but also with sarcastic adult humor, experience and knowledge of the issues.

Simon Sansome has recently been in the national press as he is the writer and creator of The Bill spin off show Sun Hill which is in pre-production. 

The show is recorded over Zoom due to Covid, but that does not take away the fact that this is a well thought out, confident show that is finding an audience by approaching subjects most people do not dare talk about and the stories raised are regularly reported in the national press. Stories that have featured that have received national attention are, being thrown out a seaside arcade for having a disability, taking on Colgate to change their advert and talking about Sun Hill.

With an ever-rising audience reaching the hundreds of thousands, it really has no limits on where the viewing figures can go with this informative and often stupid podcast, it has certainly struck a cord with a core audience.
