Two audio pieces that I’ve done have just been uploaded online. I’m really proud of these and excited you can hear them.
The first is a recording from Words on Fire at the Wheeler Centre, which took place In February. I gave a speech urging people not to forget about disability in their diversity and feminism movements. Listen to it here.
I was honoured to be in a super talented lineup including Sally Warhaft, Omar Musar, Leah Purcell, Tony Birch, Moira Finucane and Rosie Waterland. Wow!
There’s no transcript but there will be a version of this in my book. (Sign up for book updates here)
There will be more recordings from Words on Fire here.
And the other thing I’ve done – just last Saturday – is chatted to Danish comedian Sofie Hagen on her Made of Human podcast. What a great morning that was! She is lovely, and I could have chatted all day. We talked about how I’m feeling after that interview, the pressure to do disability activism a certain way, what I would like to be asked, the purpose of my writing and how it’s evolved and fandom.
Thanks for all of your support in the past week. It’s been extraordinary and I’m very grateful, and also tired. I want to write more of my thoughts about the interview and what happened afterward soon. But even a week later, I’m still processing.
If you can’t get enough of my voice, listen to my regular podcast with Jason-Scott Watkins – Refreshments Provided.
