Episode Notes Bonus Episode! I am so excited about my new podcast network Wheels on The Ground Network and some of the amazing podcasts that will come out of it. One of those is of course Crip Times: A Podcast Series hosted by Kayla, Yousef and Kristina. To kick them off, I thought I would share their very first episode with you now, so you can get a taste for it. Here's what their episode is about today, and then from there you can search "Crip Times" wherever you podcast! Enjoy! Episode Overview  “It’s just time to take a leap and imagine a future that is different than this one.” On the first episode of Crip Times, hosts Yousef, Kayla, and Kristina speak with artist, activist, academic, and all around brilliant human, Syrus Marcus Ware.  This conversation discusses the movements and actions that have occurred in Toronto and across Turtles Island over the summer of 2020. The building of collective knowledge surrounding social justice and abolition. The four discuss the role of Deaf, Mad, and Disabled folks in activism, their value and necessity in activist spaces. The conversation moves to intergenerational movement building, the role of traditional knowledge in our imagined and possible futures, and the role of children in activist spaces. They discuss activist scholarship and how traditional academic spaces can be used as sites of activism.  The episode wraps up with a conversation on joy and desired futures.  To find show notes and a full transcript of this episode, visit the Bodies in Translation Website here: https://bodiesintranslation.ca/crip-times-a-podcast-series/
