We welcome Amanda Barr—ceramicist, teacher, and disability advocate—to the show to talk about the experience of disability in a colonial society. A society that often seems as though it would prefer if people with disabilities would vanish from public life. We touch on the impact of being disabled in everything from education to parking to work to dating and sex education, making connections between the colonialist state and disabled folks’ lives every step of the way.
