060 – What Does Having a Disability Mean to You?

January 21, 2019 twodisableddudes

Listener email! Maria Sobotka reached out to us via Facebook (facebook.com/twodisableddudes) and she cut straight to the chase, asking four direct and specific questions:

  • What does having disability mean to you?
  • Do you even feel disabled?
  • Are you ashamed or proud of being disabled?
  • Has having FA changed your view about disability?

We tackle these questions and share a few resources that have helped developed our own perspectives.

One thing we mention is a TEDx talk we’ve both enjoyed in the past, but we couldn’t remember the speaker or the title at the time of the recording! So, Stella Young is who we refer to and her hilarious and insightful talk can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K9Gg164Bsw

Another thing we talked about is #DontForgetTheCrew. More info here: dontforgetthecrew.com.
