It’s My Body and I’ll Live if I Want To with Alice Wong

With Friends Like These - March 27, 2020 - 40:09

This week friend of the pod Alice Wong (@SFDirewolf) joins Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to talk about what it means to be a part of the disabled community during a pandemic. Spoiler: the world seems to get a little too cavalier about whether or not you deserve to live anymore. They talk about the grassroots activism being done within the community, and what able bodied folks can do to listen and be better. Remember, we are staying inside and quarantining for the good of everyone, not just those we deem worthy of surviving capitalism.Learn more about Alice’s work with the Disability Visibility Project here.Read more about the fight for Medicaid here.Thanks to our sponsors!With their powerful matching technology, ZipRecruiter scans thousands of resumes to find people with the right skills and experience for your job — and actively invites them to apply.
