Challenging... in the good way!!
Important topics discussed by two lovely folks who frequently have opposing viewpoints, but care about each other and the topic. Their willingness to have an open and compassionate discussion challenges the listener to allow their own opinions to comingle with other disabled voices. Wow!
Fun and Thoughtful
Enjoy every episode and it brings issues to me that I hadn't thought of. Entertaining conversation. Good podcast.
Emily and Kyle Rule!
I just discovered this podcast and I’m in love. I’ve been working with people with disabilities for 5 years and some of these issues I’ve been unaware of. Their blunt perspective and thoughts are insightful in a good way! They tell it how it is with a spark a humor. This podcast is definitely a game changer!
