Alice Evans, Daisy Holder & Lucy Wood bring you another History Lesson. Profiling people from history who lived survived and thrived with a disability or chronic illness.
About This Episode
In the first episode of our LGBTQIA Pride series, we meet with our historian Daisy Holder to talk about American poet and activitist Audre Lorde.
With insights from a different guest in every episode, lABLEd Podcast uncovers the vast spectrum of life with health conditions and impairments. Host Alice Evans and Lucy Wood and their guest discuss how it shapes personal identities and opens up about the prejudices that disabled and chronically ill people face daily.
This show regularly covers very personal and sometimes controversial topics, so listeners may hear the language, including profanity or terminology that they find offensive. Please be aware of this as you listen to this episode. In addition, several historical terms for disability are used in this episode in reference context. These are now considered highly offensive.
