Pigeonhole challenges the stereotypes that disabled people are all white, straight, middle class people in search of a cure for their bodies and minds the way mainstream media would make it seem. Made by from disability community, and centering disabled people as audience, Pigeonhole interrogates the assumptions and biases we hold about disability and embraces all parts of people's identities. We uplift disability culture, celebrate identity, and break out of the narrow pigeonholes people attempt to stuff us in. All episodes have screen reader-accessible pdf full transcripts at whoamitostopit.com.

This podcast is a part of the movement of in disability culture which rejects medical analyses of our lives, or reduces us to inspirational victims of tragedy. The political urgency for an intersectional disability lens in social justice movements boils under the surface of each episode. This podcast is not only well-produced and edited but it is also transcribed, which which demonstrates this podcaster’s commitment to access. So excited for more to come!
This is a great series. The host does a wonderful job of balancing guests, including many people from inside world of disability - with a focus on people with disabilities themselves. Stories like these are too few and too far between, and this podcast is a welcome addition! Well worth downloading, subscribing, and checking out the other projects of the host and her guests.
