Extended Description

In this episode, Calum takes you to the place he lives in Australia: Newcastle, New South Wales. Newcastle is significant for Calum because it's not only the place where he was discharged, it is also the place where he began to discover his divergent body.

Listen as Calum leads you down the industrial backstreets to Breaking Boundaries, the neurological rehabilitation centre he attends regularly. In this discussion, Calum and Director of Physiotherapy at Breaking Boundaries, Philippa (Pip) Cave, discuss the inception of the service, why it might be tough to find private services like this, as well as the significance of BB to the wider community.
