Podcast: Disability Awareness and Community Interactions

In Episode 3 of the Real Empowerment Podcast, a panel of people with disabilities discusses funny, interesting, and head-scratching interactions they’ve had with the public.

  • Hear about the time a woman took Tim Ashley, who uses a wheelchair, on an unexpected spin through a parking lot.
  • Find out how Daniel Ratcliff responds when others question whether he’s really blind.
  • Learn how Elle Livengood, who is Deaf, is greeted almost every time she steps off a plane.
  • Listen to the surprising reaction Becca Michael got from a DMV worker in response to her prosthetic eye.

The panel will also discuss the best ways to interact with people with disabilities and how to provide accessibility so that everyone can feel welcome.
