Episode Info:

On this, the final episode of Traitor Radio, we're talking disability and the 'r' word with Schuyler and Robert Rummel-Hudson, the father-daughter pair behind Fighting Monsters with Rubber Swords, a brilliant blog and writing project dedicated to disability advocacy. Rummel-Hudson's book, Schuyler's Monster, is a must-read.

Schuyler, who'll graduate from high school this year, and Robert discuss how it felt the first time they heard President Donald Trump mock a reporter with a disability, how they've overcome clashes with institutional resistance to ability accommodations, and what to say -- and do -- when someone uses the "r" word as a slur.
