Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 229 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! You are gonna love this one, maybe as much as Pip did recording it - ladies and gentlemen, this week’s guest is the incredible bionic arm queen Angel Giuffria!

So much goodness contained in one episode, it’s hard to know where to begin… You may have seen Angel in Hunger Games, or maybe Goliath, or caught some of the SXSW action she was recently involved in, but either way - know her or not - you will enjoy this chance to get further acquainted with her as she drops gem after gem with ease! A self identified cyborg, she is the youngest in the world to wear a muscle powered arm, and you’ll get to hear everything from her “You’re different, that’s awesome!” Mum (which might have led to issues with other pupils), how not having an arm in the first place meant that she never felt like needed to ‘get back’ to having one, the world not being designed for differently limbed people, disability rankings, the ongoing conflict of actors playing roles of disabled people, how disabled people are the only remaining minority group it’s ‘acceptable’ to dress up as, the SXSW controversy (the loose end at the start gets tied up, don’t worry!), tough calls in casting and auditions, a fascinating breakdown of how her incredible bionic limb system works, insurance and how tough it can be to actually obtain an arm, and just EVER SO MUCH more. Seriously, it would just be a list of spoilers here if I went on. So please enjoy this wonderful insight into the world of a differently limbed and incredibly awesome person - get to love ANGEL GIUFFRIA!
