Access Aisle Interviews

In each interview episode, our host will guide the exploration of a topic that has an impact on living with a disability in South Carolina. Sometimes it is a barrier for us to remove together and sometimes it is an issue that more of us need to know about. Whatever the topic, the Access Aisle features expert input from the disability community and/or from policymakers. Know the issues, get involved, catch our interview episodes!

(Inspiration) Porn Clip of the Month

The (Inspiration) Porn Clip segment is not for the faint of heart. In each episode, our host dismantles an example of media designed to make those without disabilities (“normies”) feel warm and fuzzy at the expense of the disability community. Inspiration porn isn’t cute. It drives pity and preserves barriers to real equality. This is a great segment to share with a friend who just doesn’t get it (yet) and needs a clean dose of truth.

For an introduction to Inspiration Porn check out this TED Talk by Stella Young!
