Jala is joined by Lance to discuss what disability is, how to talk about it, and ways to reduce your own personal ableism. Lance also tells his own personal journey before and after becoming disabled.
Jala and Lance would both like to shout out to and thank Laura Stinson of Bad Attitudes podcast for her work. Check out Laura's podcast at badattitudespod.com, and check out her Etsy store FairyNerdy for handcut vinyl stickers, enamel pins, and graphic tees with original illustrated designs by her.
