Listen to our podcast "The Resilience Sessions"

The Resilience Sessions is a podcast that brings together injured veterans from Blesma and a well known public figure, to share their stories of overcoming challenge of all kinds.

Through these conversations our guests chat to one another about their experiences, sharing how they have navigated their ups and downs, finding often surprising common ground, and showing that what is most personal is often most universal.

The Resilience Sessions grew out of the Making Generation R campaign, which has trained injured veterans to tell their stories to over 100,000 front line workers, first responders and young people.

Each Tuesday we will be releasing a new Episode of the Podcast.

In episode 2 we talk to Kriss Akabusi, Olympian and owner of the best laugh in show biz, and to veteran and free-runner Mat Armitage, who lost his leg following a motorbike accident. We discussed childhood experiences, stealing dinghies, magical thinking, determination, squaddie humour, and the wider impact of the ability to emotionally disconnect.

Download and listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts & Spotify. Also available to watch on Youtube. Just search for The Resilience Sessions.
