    E357 - The History of The Walker

    Episode Notes
    On E357, we have a comfy, cozy episode where we look at the history of a very well used mobility aid: The Walker/Walking Frame. We explore its origins all the way back to the time of Christ...maybe? We look at some examples of the walker's predecessor, the Hand Trestle, and a walking aid from the early 1900s. Plus, Andrew shares some times when he used a walker and even shares celebs who have been seen using them. Enjoy!

    E355 - Popcorn and Power Chairs 7 - The Whale

    E355 - Popcorn and Power Chairs 7 - The Whale

    Episode Notes
    In E355, we have another installment of Popcorn and Power Chairs.  In this one, I wanted to review The Brendan Fraser led Drama/Horror (horror according to Google) The Whale.  I had a lot of feelings about how fatness and disability were portrayed in this one, and I often found the ableism overwhelming alongside the fatphobia.  Why didn’t they just hire a fat person?  Or a disabled person? And other questions… like who was it made for?  I don’t know if this was the way we should have welcomed Brendan Fraser back.  What did you think?

Christophoros M ,

Andrew’s awesome! Illuminates our stories!

I have cerebral palsy and rarely hear from people like me. This show brings a level of community to my online crip existence with a motley of lovely disabled voices! Dark Pod is everything!

Welcome Back!

Hello, Andrew!
I just finished listening to your first podcast back after your hiatus. It really feels good to have you back on the air, and you are also to be commended for knowing when you needed to take a break, and paying attention to what your body and mind were telling you what needed to be done.
I really hope you also continue to occasionally sprinkle in episodes that would fall under the category "What Would Happen if you Became Disabled Tomorrow?”
I look forward to hearing more of your terrific work!

Hilarious, Extremely Useful and Very Much Appreciated!!

As a fellow disabled person, this is what’s needed in our society, a society that doesn’t talk about these topics enough!! Andrew, please don’t stop what you’re doing!! It’s very much appreciated!! And you’re hilarious, man! Please keep being yourself—a hilarious, intelligent person!
