There's no Andy again this week as he does the rather more important job of being a Dad. Beans and Gaz head north to Whitburn in Scotland to check out the World Cup of Disability Darts. Covid may have affected the number of countries that attended but that didn't dampen the spirits or the quality of the darts! We interviewed a number of interesting characters and learned alot about podcasting in the field (sorry for the background noise), darts and more importantly the challenges faced by disabled darts players to be recognised for their achievements and to make it available for everyone. First we spoke to Jed Macphee, inventor of the flexi-board that makes moving the board for standing and wheelchair bound players to compete at the same oche. Next we spoke to Snowy Dyson a bilateral amputee who had competed in various degrees and at an incredibly high standard. He had a lot to say about the issues faced and really made us think about something that, if we're really honest, we had been blind to. We loved his honesty and approach. We spoke to Eddie Bailey about his charity raising for prostate cancer. We spoke to Debbie, a darts player who has travelled aboard to compete in competitions in Malta and Catalonia. Jim Mitchell has done more for disabled darts in Scotland, especially for women, than anyone else. Despite not being disabled himself. He also had an incredible darting collection that was on show in the hotel. Finally we spoke to Scott, one half of Darts-themed family spirits company Double Trouble Drinks who were sponsoring the event a out how they got involved. Enjoy! The opening music is "London Bayou" by Oscar Albis Rodriguez and the closing music is "BDS" by Lewis Pickford. This episode is also available on YouTube https://youtu.be/sqHSmxycxpQ tallboyradio.com
