The Motability Lifestyle Pod is going international

Flying long-haul with British Airways (BA) this summer? Catch series one of The Motability Lifestyle Pod onboard from June. Relax, recline your chair and enjoy the Pod while thousands of feet in the air.

The video equivalent of the Pod, called a vodcast, will be available on BA’s onboard High Life Entertainment, and will be listened to by thousands of travellers. The videos feature British Sign Language (BSL) and captions, ensuring accessibility.

This is a major win for Motability Lifestyle and the disability community. Lifestyle editor, Sophie-Marie Odum, says: “While the podcast is for everyone, we hope the disabled community feel represented while travelling. As far as we’re aware, BA is the first airline to have an accessible vodcast onboard. We look forward to many more people enjoying the Pod.”

The Motability Lifestyle Pod is a podcast series from the team behind Motability’s award-winning Lifestyle magazine. Hosts Sophie-Marie Odum and Samantha Renke, explore what it’s like to navigate a disabling world, whilst featuring uplifting news and in-depth interviews. Plus, there’s entertaining, all-you-need-to-know car chat from Lifestyle Drive editor Matt Lizzimore.

Series one guests featured many well-known names within the disability community, such as comedian and model Fats Timbo; former royal marines commando and Motability Scheme Ambassador, Mark Omrod and Dr Hannah Barham-Brown. Topics included dating with a disability, remaining positive through adversity and accessible electric vehicle charging for all.

If you’re flying with BA and catch the Pod onboard, please share your pictures with them on their Instagram page.

If you’re not travelling, you can still catch the series on their YouTube channel or as audio on all major streaming platforms. For the full transcripts, please visit the Lifestyle website.

Series 2 is out now.
