AT Banter Episode 270 – Ableism Part 2

Rob, Lis, Steve, and Ryan welcome fellow podcasters and advocates Amy Amantea and Shawn Marsolais for the second part of an epic roundtable discussion on ableism, specifically the notion of “inspiration porn”. Inspiration porn is a term coined by Australian disability advocate Stella Young and refers to the age old notion of the exploitation of people with disabilities. We discuss the origins, talk about its impact on everyday lives, the fine line that exists between teachable moments and personal space, and much more.
