In this episode, we’re focussing on gaslighting and patronising behaviour as well as the importance of representation when it comes to chronic pain. You’ll hear from London-based filmmaker and video journalist Jameisha Prescod who is the creator and founder of ‘You Look Okay to Me’ – an online space for chronic illness; and listen to an edited excerpt of I’m Not a Good Girl, a performance by Melbourne-based artist Sam Petersen.
