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
