Over 100 years ago Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant.” Through his alter egos, many of whom represent anti-Semites, racists and neo-Nazis, Baron Cohen shines a piercing light on people’s ignorance and biases.

Jack Kavanagh is a life coach, motivational speaker, business analyst, a pharmacy masters graduate and a wheelchair user. On the first day of a summer holiday to Portugal back in 2012, Jack dived into the ocean hitting his head off a sand bank and breaking his neck. This left him paralysed from the neck down with less than 15% global muscle function.
Jack has a gift. His mental clarity is refreshing. His outlook on life; Inspirational. Here is a young guy who was left in a wheelchair after a freak accident at the age of 20. He lives with no resentment, no bitterness, no anger. After the event, he went through a transformative time where by experiencing his rock bottom, he began to rebuild, forming a mind so strong that it made him unbreakable. When there’s a will, there’s always a way and there certainly was when it came to jack.
In this week’s episode we speak about body image issues and the destructive role its playing in young people’s lives. We talk about the importance of using a constructive and positive internal voice when speaking to yourself and how valuable some self-compassion can be in times of stress. We delve into the issue of how society perceive abilities and disabilities, restricting you from being your true authentic self.
