I finally listened to the first Criptiques Podcast, featuring an interview with one of my favorite disability bloggers, Emily Ladau. Emily and her podcast interviewer, Catlin Wood, say during their discussion that they are making each other nod their heads a lot, especially describing being visibly disabled in college and only gradually coming to feel connected with a disability community or "crip culture". I nodded so much I worried my head would fall off.
We need more disability-related podcasts like this.
The podcast accompanies the recent publication of Criptiques, by Caitlin Wood, an anthology of essays on disability by people with disabilities. I look forward to the next episodes. And I ordered the book, too.
Disability life, ideas, identity, culture, commentary, and politics.
