Earlier this year the Critical Physiotherapy Network published Manipulating practices: A critical physiotherapy reader. The book is a collection of critical writing from a variety of authors dealing with a range of topics related to physiotherapy practice and education. One of the interesting features of this collection is that it is completely open access, which means that the authors, and not the publishers, have the intellectual property rights to make choices about what is permissible to do with the content of the book. While the entire book is available in different formats, including PDF, HTML, EPUB and XML, there is no audio version. As an experiment, we published one chapter of the book as a podcast too see what kind of response we get. This episode is that chapter.
