EPISODE 2 | Jade is a father, a businessman, and travels up and down the country doing critical advocacy work. He also has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, like me. We discuss the realities of parenting in a wheelchair, Jade's work transforming systems, and his vision for the disability community itself - are we a community at all? Do we all need to get along in order to be effective?
Welcome to Conversations with Crips: a podcast about the intersection of disability and identity, social change, and the peculiarities of life.
I started this podcast because even though I’m a disabled person, I don’t feel much of a part of the disability community. So I figured that if I wanted to begin exploring that side of my identity, I should probably start by having conversations with other disabled people who are doing cool stuff. So I did. And I put them on the internet in the hope that someone else might enjoy them, too.
