"Turtles," featuring Andrew Gurza

Last season you met Andrew Gurza, self-described “disabled man” and “queer cripple.” In this episode, Andrew returns to the show to talk about "straw bans," ableism, and turtles. If you're one of the many people who think that banning straws in restaurants is a good idea, pour yourself a drink and listen to Andrew explain why privilege and ableism may be making it hard for you to understand the perspective of persons with disabilities. Andrew is the host of Disability After Dark, a podcast that "shines a bright light on sex and disability." You can learn more about Andrew's podcast and disability awareness consulting services on his website, http://www.andrewgurza.com. You can follow Andrew on Twitter at @andrewgurza.
