a voice everyone should hear

Erica’s perspective, knowledge and wit opens the door for those of us outside of the disabled community to better support and advocate with our disabled and care-giving friends. Her voice is a balm.

A Must Hear

My favorite podcast! Whether you’re a fellow medical parent, disabled person, caregiver or medical provider, someone who cares about creating a better and more compassionate world, or someone who wants to better understand the diversity of human experience, this podcast is for you. Besides being a joy to simply listen to, Erica Jolene doesn’t shy away from the hard conversations and atypical truths. These honest conversations make for a podcast that truly builds community and provides resources for listeners. I can’t get enough!
