Building a Better Community: Advertising

Emily and I struggle all the time with how we represent the “greater” disability community. We want to do the best we can when we produce this show. One theme that comes up constantly is the disability community itself and Emily and I agree: we need to be better.  But how can we do that?

Building a Better Community

Introducing our new mini series. In each episode, we will discuss an issue we see inside our community. We will then discuss how we would like to improve it, hopefully creating a dialog with you, our listeners, in the process. We think you’ll enjoy the first in this series, where we talk about disability and its portrayal in advertising.

Show notes: Deaf Brothers HP Commercial, Maltesers Ad

Episode 16: Inspiration Porn

“Inspiration Porn” is one of the only things the entire disability community can agree is bad, right? Kyle and Emily take a closer look into inspiration porn in this episode of The Accessible Stall – what it is, what it isn’t, and what can be done about it.

A transcript for this episode can be found here. This transcript was done by Sarah Blahovec.

Notes from this episode: Stella Young’s TEDx Talk.

Episode 15: Robyn Lambird

Robyn Lambird is a wheelchair athlete, YouTuber, and model. She’s also a super cool human being and really fun to have on our show. Wise beyond her years, Robyn offers an interesting perspective on disability.

Plus with Robyn on our show, that means we technically have an international audience now! How cool is that!?
