It was an absolute joy to speak with author, communications consultant, and disability activist, Emily Ladau on this episode of the Disability Belongs Podcast! We talk about Emily's experience writing her book Demystifying Disability. We also discuss how disability impacts every part of your life as a Disabled person and how, for many of us, disability is linked to our identity. 
 
Trigger Warning: ableism

In this episode, I talk with Rebecca Hoyt about her work at Disability Rights California (DRC). She shares about her experience with dyslexia and how that has evolved throughout her life. Rebecca even lets us in on her self care secret: the self care chair! 
 
Since the recording of the episode, Rebecca has moved on from DRC and taken a new role as the Disability Rights and Services Specialist for the City of Madison.

In Episode 2 of the Disability Belongs Podcast, I get to talk with Evan Milburn about his life as a Disability advocate. He shares how he came to work with YO! Disabled and Proud and what the program has taught him. We also talk about self-care as Disabled people, and I go on a brief soapbox about how the concept of making your bed is ableist. 
 
Since the recording of this episode, Evan and I finally got to meet in person! I can attest that he is just as great as he sounds in the podcast! We'll have to have him join us again so we can share the story of our meeting in sunny San Diego. 
 
Trigger Warnings: ableism, depression, bullying, medical trauma

In the first-ever episode of the Disability Belongs Podcast, I talk with the wonderful Tatum! Tatum has a bachelor's degree in Christian Studies and Philosophy and is currently in a master's of divinity program. In today's episode, she talks about her experience growing up as a Disabled person in the education system. We talked about what it means to live fully into your Disabled identity, told stories of accommodations in high school, and even talked about the time we both dyed our hair blue.

Meet your Host!

 

Hi! I'm Cami! As a Disabled college student hoping to work as a physician someday, I have often felt isolated going to school with mostly abled peers. When I looked for stories like mine, they seemed hard to find. Enter the Disability Belongs Podcast.

 

With the help of my team at YO! Disabled and Proud, I have created a podcast to center Disabled stories and remind the world that Disabled people belong in every area of life.
