In this episode, we talk with Angela Carter about her research and lived experience with disability justice and crip theory. Angela cites numerous artists, academics and activists who do amazing intersectional work–so grab your notepad! We also chat about how disability justice intersects with classroom access and protest culture. And, as always, a bunch of white dudes are ruining our dinner party.
Mercury Retrograde note: This episode was recorded with two people who had the flu, and a bunch of mysterious moments where our connection sounded less like 2017 and more like a landline phone conversation in 1964. It is 100% the power of Mercury Retrograde for which we have no control. Besos!
