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”.

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.
