Insightful and Informative Series
I am really enjoying this podcast! The host, Michelle, does a great job of breaking down and contextualizing issues presented by her guests and sets an easy-to-follow pace for each episode. It’s an innovative show concept and definitely challenges its listeners to rethink some of our own everyday assumptions. The sound design is super high quality too!
Great podcast, great host.
Adaptive is great! I really like Michelle’s narrative style. Looking forward to future episodes!
A surprising find!
Thought provoking podcast so far! I recommend this for a listen because it challenges the notions of ablism in an engaging and interesting way. Looking forward to the rest of the series
