Philip lives in regional Victoria with his seeing-eye dog Sally. A few years ago Philip had to get laser surgery on his only eye that had partial sight, and needed help to get to the hospital and back again, so the Royal Flying Doctor Service patient transport service assisted him.

This podcast interview is a glimpse into the life of someone who lives independently with a disability (and takes on that challenge with gusto and enthusiasm). 

Philip has been listening to the Flying Doctor podcast and had reached out to me with questions about Flying Doctor planes to find out if seeing-eye dogs are permitted onboard with their owners (they are).
