Disability: Our Culture Ourselves" in this episode we discuss disability, culture and identity from the perspective of disability communities themselves.

Seattle based activist Dorian Taylor talks about the specific challenges disabled people face while accessing public transportation and Professor Sara Acevedo discusses the powerful ways that common language and terminology can shape our perceptions of disability, and why even today we are seeing further exclusion of disabled people.
