I'm a disabled freelance journalist. I sometimes write for the BBC's Ouch website, but at the moment my day job is as a producer of podcasts for Channel 4 Radio. The podcasts are part of C4's venture into the radio market, short audio-only programmes available online after key TV programmes. The ones I'm making are all on contemporary current affairs
The particular reason I'm contacting you is because I'm producing something to coincide with an upcoming C4 programme looking at NHS postcode lotteries access to treatments and so forth.
These podcasts tend to be what we call 'single voice' affairs - I take a microphone to an individual and record them talking in their own words, about their own experiences. I'm very interested in this one being from the point of view of someone who is fighting for or has fought for a particular sort of treatment.
I know Beta Interferon continutes to be an issue for people who have MS, and I wondered if MSRC might be willing to help me get in touch with people who have experience of fighting for beta interferon who might be interested in taking part in a podcast.
The catch is that my schedule is - as always - very tight, and in an ideal world I am looking for someone who is able to take part in recording on Thursday or Friday this week.
