Ouch\'s new channel on Audioboo

We're making it easier for you to delve into Ouch

As well as the blog, we do a monthly internet radio programme. And now we're posting clips of the programme to a new channel we've got on Audioboo.

Here are three items taken from the talk show that you can click and listen to right now:

See my "bed life", see the whole me - an interview with artist Liz Crow who was about to spend two days and nights exhibiting herself in bed, being the disabled person she is when she's not putting a brave face on things out in public. She also talks about standing on the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square dressed as a Nazi to highlight the disability holocaust in World War II.

Winter Paralympics: What do you know about the Games? Anything? (fact burst) - Just as it says on the tin. Rob and Liz fire questions at Tony Garrett about the colder non-London games ahead of us in 2014. If you know nothing about them, this'll bring you up to speed - quickly.

"Disabled people don't exist in a vacuum." DLA changes could have knock on effects for others - Broadening-out the benefit change debate, blogger Emma Round (Pseudo Deviant) and stickman cartoonist Hannah Ensor discuss how they spend their benefits and who it will affect if their money is reduced or taken away, includes taxi drivers and local businesses.

We're regularly adding new clips from the programme and will bring you more audio in the future.

Click, listen and share. Audioboo is a social networking site for playing and sharing audio, and having discussions around it.

Sledge hockey: The crash bang of wheelchair rugby, with ice

listen to ‘Winter Paralympics:If you like wheelchair rugby, you'll like sledge hockey’ on Audioboo

What is sledge hockey? And why should we be rooting for Team GB to qualify for the 2014 Winter Paralympics?

"It's the disabled version of ice hockey," says GB sledge hockey goalie Rob Gaze. "Most of the rules are the same, except obviously most of us can't move our legs."

He started playing the rough and ready disability sport after a spinal injury eight years ago. Click the above play button and you can hear in his voice how much he loves it. Gaze was speaking on the Ouch! talk show for April.

The goalie says: "We sit in a little chair, which is strapped to a frame, which has skates on the bottom. And we use two sticks rather than one. They're about a quarter of the length of normal hockey sticks but have the same shooting head on. They have [ice] picks on the bottom so we can push around the ice."

Gaze plays wheelchair basketball too but earlier, in a poetic moment off air, he told us: "There's something about being on that ice. It's cold but it's hot ... there's the mental game of psyching out opponents like in wheelchair basketball, but it's also very physical.

"[It's] one of the best sports in the world."

Comparisons are made between sledge hockey and wheelchair rugby. People were shocked and delighted during the London Paralympics on the hitherto unlikely sight of disabled people being turfed out of their chairs onto the court. Sledge hockey is similar because of the speed, the contact and the number of injuries received during play.

"You can't start fights otherwise you're going to get sent to the sin bin and you can't punch people," says Gaze. "But there's nothing wrong with you going in with your shoulder into somebody and knocking them flat off their sled.

"If they've got the puck, rather than going for the puck, you try to take the man away."

The GB sledge hockey team describe themselves as "underdogs". According to Gaze, this is a status they like. They surprised everyone recently by winning bronze at the world championships in Japan and it has earned them a place at the final tournament later this year. Winning a bronze there will mean they qualify for the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

So, will they make it? Gaze says: "I'm a bit nervous but yeah we can do it. We push ourselves harder every time we go out, and people have started taking notice. So there's not much more you could want."

Rob Gaze was interviewed on the April episode of the BBC Ouch! talk show.
