How  do sports effect you as a disabled person?

Disability-inclusive sports program, Vanuatu 2010. Photo: AusAID? Are you a player/doer? Spectator? Do sports and things about them encourage/discourage you? Do you feel that you can’t participate? Do you wish you  could? How do the images around sports reflect on ablism? It’s interesting to notice all the sports-related language in our culture.

Don’t give a damn? Is this all just a bunch of hooplah that means nothing?

We tackle how sports effect people with disabilities and take call ins.  It’s a participatory sport. No losers possible.

With essays by Doyle Saylor, Tangikina Moimoi, and “Bob.”

Produced and Hosted by Sheela Gunn Cushman, Co-host Mark Romoser.   Audio narration by Adrienne Lauby.
