Fun and Thoughtful
Enjoy every episode and it brings issues to me that I hadn't thought of. Entertaining conversation. Good podcast.
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!
