    MMP Ep 188: Ableism in Wellness with Vicki Singer

    In this episode, Jess sits down with Vicki Singer of Singer Wellness to discuss a concept that many people may have never considered before - ableism, and particularly how it can show up in the wellness community. Vicki is a Whole30 Certified Coach, Adaptive and Inclusive Trainer, and has cerebral palsy. Vicki has been highly dedicated to informing and educating on disability in social media, and was such an excellent guide through this complex topic. Not only do we dive into what ableism is and how we can recognize it but we also chat other topics:


    What are some ableist ways of thinking that we can challenge RIGHT NOW
    how can we use knowledge of ableism in how we interact, speak to and teach the children we care for or work with
    practical tips on how to start the transition of towards inclusive social media practices for people of all abilities

    We hope you learn something new today that empowers you to think critically about your life in a constructive way!

The podcast I look forward to each week

Listening to Jess and Laura is like catching up with two of your best friends. They are relatable, funny, and real. They always have amazing guests and their catch-up episodes are really just a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend!

A little hit or miss

I’ve been listening to this podcast since inception and have generally really loved the range of content, the catch up episodes are also really fun and do feel like catching up with friends! This podcast was especially valuable when I was first transitioning to motherhood, I felt like I had my own little village! When it comes to the guest episodes (and they have great experts sometimes) I don’t think they do the best job interviewing, Laura especially has a tendency to talk way too much during those. I also agree with the previous reviewer on the covid-minimizing...there is a very fine line between openness and spreading false information when you are a wellness influencer. Also the episode on school choice was so out of touch. Laura’s comment on how she always asks her daughter if she wants to to school...yeah that’s really nice of you and you are such a good mother...but not everyone has that luxury, especially during a global pandemic when parents are dying to send their kids to school. Anyways I’ll continue to listen but it is a little hit or miss in my opinion.
