    Uncovering The Layers of Disability w/ Tiffany Yu CEO & Founder of Diversability

    Episode Notes
    On episode 319, I sit down with my friend and colleague, the multihyphenate, Tiffany Yu, CEO and Founder of Diversability.  We talk about her journey to acceptance of disability, and how there are so many layers to that acceptance that we don’t really explore.  Tiffany and I explore those layers here.  We also talk about what it’s like when family doesn’t acknowledge your work in disability + so much more.  Enjoy!

    Episode Notes

    In episode 318, I sit down with filmmaker and dancer Kelsey Peterson as she shares all about her important new documentary “Move Me” now streaming on the PBS Video App.  We also have a big talk about internalized ableism and how Kelsey is navigating that, 10 years after her accident.  We talk about this, and that Kelsey is still learning so much about disability.  We have a really raw, candid conversation that I hope you will enjoy.

Unsatisfied freecycle-er ,

Yup, this podcast if for YOU

This podcast has helped me to self reflect on my own ableism and has helped to expand my world view. It doesn’t matter what kind of body you have, this podcast should be in your library. Andrew is charming, kind and articulate- the kind of person I’d want to have a beer with. Wonderful listening experience.

Eye-opening, great podcast

Have listened to this podcast since soon after it began. Andrew has grown in confidence and does a great job — he is forthright, compassionate, and wide open.
