Episode 77 – Privilege Pt. 1 – Deconstructing Disability

In this all new episode, Rob shares a couple of stirring and enlightening excerpts from two powerful essays discussing the construction of disability in our culture, the history of abuse and mistreatment of people who are not societally enabled, the religious and faux scientific reinforcement of the stigmatization and persecution of persons with disabilities, our founding failures, and much more. The essays by Susan Wendell, Cynthia Ann Bowman & Paul Jaeger serve as an emotional starting point for this dissection of privilege in our society. All with humor, music and more.
