Recommended by Lauren from the Big Listen.
She says, "In 2015, Alice Wong became the first person to ever visit the White House or meet the president via robotic presence. Wong, a disability rights advocate, was invited there to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Today, Wong has added podcasting to her activism, hosting a new show called Disability Visibility. It’s part of the Disability Visibility Project, which she founded in partnership with StoryCorps to preserve the stories of the disability community."
Description: This is life from a disabled lens. Disability Visibility is a weekly podcast hosted by San Francisco night owl Alice Wong featuring conversations on politics, culture, and media with disabled people. If you're interested in disability rights, social justice, and intersectionality, this show is for you. It's time to hear more disabled voices in radio. Disability Visibility is a production of the Disability Visibility Project®, an online community dedicated to recording, amplifying, and sharing disability media and culture.
