A fascinating journey into the minds of Paralympians, as they share experiences that can benefit your own personal and professional life. A new episode is released every Friday.

This empowering weekly series is the official podcast of the International Paralympic Committee, in partnership with Allianz.

Each podcast will provide a platform for Para athletes to talk about their empowering and inspirational stories, sporting life and greatest achievement and enable them to showcase their personalities.

The episodes will go beyond Paralympic stories by covering a range of educational, confidence and self-improvement themes.  Athletes will also tackle subjects that are close to their hearts and of interest to fans. Issues to be explored include activism, leadership, motivation, changing attitudes, overcoming failure, mental health, resilience, positivity, diversity and inclusion, body confidence, compassion, decision-making, communication, self-understanding, happiness, organisation and efficiency techniques, combining family with a sport career, parenting, the power of purpose and a personal vision, assertiveness, empathy, friendship and teamwork.

The Podcast series will also explore the progress and transformational impact made by the Paralympic Movement so far in making for a more inclusive world. We’ll understand how Para sport has helped to change attitudes, increase mobility and accessibility and create more opportunities for people with a disability whether to have an education, play sport, have access to healthcare or employment.

The Paralympic podcast series is available on all major podcast platforms and is presented by British broadcaster Andy Stevenson, who has reported on the Paralympic Games since 2012 for BBC and Channel 4.
