Much-Needed Perspective

This podcast is a part of the movement of in disability culture which rejects medical analyses of our lives, or reduces us to inspirational victims of tragedy. The political urgency for an intersectional disability lens in social justice movements boils under the surface of each episode. This podcast is not only well-produced and edited but it is also transcribed, which which demonstrates this podcaster’s commitment to access. So excited for more to come!

Excellent Podcast!

This is a great series. The host does a wonderful job of balancing guests, including many people from inside world of disability - with a focus on people with disabilities themselves. Stories like these are too few and too far between, and this podcast is a welcome addition! Well worth downloading, subscribing, and checking out the other projects of the host and her guests.
