7/25/2017
More
We have wanted to talk about disability and parents on this show for a long time. Specifically, the dynamic between an able-bodied parent and a disabled child. There were just two small problems: We are not parents, and we are disabled. Therefore, we had to bring in someone who knows that dynamic first-hand. The internet...

[35] Acquiring Disability and Hearing Aids - The Accessible Stall

7/11/2017
More
In this episode, we talk about acquiring disability. Even though we have had ours from birth, acquiring disability can still affect us.

[33] Sheltered Workshops vs. Sweatshops - The Accessible Stall

6/27/2017
More
In this episode, we discuss sheltered workshops. Sheltered workshops are places that can employ people with disabilities and pay them lower than the minimum wage. Obviously, we think this is horrific. We talk about them in this episode, and compare them to sweatshops, because Kyle found another article which he thinks is absurd called The Feminist Side of Sweatshops. Enjoy! What are...

[31] Disability and College - The Accessible Stall

6/1/2017
More
We recently received a request for an episode from a listener. We’ve never gotten one of those before, so to say we were excited about it would be putting it very mildly.

It seems like we just can’t get enough of the MTA. On this episode, we discuss the newest pilot program by the MTA to encourage riders to get up for people with disabilities or pregnant women.

Today is International Women’s Day. Today is also “A Day Without a Woman,” a form of protest by the same people behind the Women’s March on Washington, which took place on January 21st, 2017. We like the idea of the Women’s Strike in theory. Women’s rights are human rights, after all. But is it a good idea in practice? Join...
