Episode 15: Oakledge For All

In this episode, Vermont Children’s Integrated Services project director Julia Wayne talks with Nate Besio and Annie Bourdon about Oakledge For All, a project aimed at bringing a fully accessible playground to Burlington VT.

Nate Besio is a person with a disability, and Annie Bourdon is the parent of a child with a disability, and they both relate how they got involved with the playground project, how the project has progressed so far, and what advice they’d give to other people looking to create an accessible playground in their own community.

Episode 12: Chayah Lichtig and Hannah Setzer

In this episode, we are lucky enough to have author and disability rights advocate Hannah Setzer join us! Setzer runs the hugely popular instagram account @feedingtubefitness, and just released a new book: “I’ll Pray for You (And Other Outrageous Things Said to Disabled People)”.

She joins the director of the Vermont Continence Project, Chayah Lichtig, as they discuss disability, pre-conceptions, instagram as both a community for people with disabilities and a public arena, and of course, the outrageous things said to disabled people.
