Nobody Told Me!

Nov 29, 2021

More than one billion people around the world are disabled, yet, there are a lot of misconceptions about what it means to be disabled. Many of us are fearful, confused and unsure of what to say and how to act around someone with a disability. On this episode, we’ll “demystify disabilities” with our guest, well-known disability rights activist, blogger and speaker Emily Ladau. 

Emily’s work has been featured by the New York Times, CNN, and U.S. News and World Report, to name just a few. She is passionate about, in her words, “Getting nondisabled people to stop treating disabled people as a weird cross between precious gems and alien creatures.” She’s the author of the new book, DEMYSTIFYING DISABILITY: What to Know, What to Say, and How to Be an Ally.
