MOB-SHOP WEEK 1

 

In this first podcast I chat to Claudia Rose Walder. Claudia is 26 and from London. She’s a former fashion stylist with a degree in Journalism, and she is Editor and Founder of Able Zine - a publication and platform for disabled and chronically ill communities, young people and creatives with an interest in diversity, inclusion and health. She has chronic pain and chronic fatigue as part of her disability, as well as complex multi-system issues. Claudia is a really good sick-friend of mine and I thought she’d be a great person to kick off this series of conversations; she’s my style queen and can take any walking stick and make it fashun. We talk mobility aids irl vs online, what it means to express disabled lifestyle, and what our dream mobility shops would look like… click below to listen and enjoy!

 

Thank you all for listening to this first conversation as part of the mini series of podcasts for MOB-SHOP, really hope you enjoyed listening and hope you tune in for another episode next week!

MOB-SHOP WEEK 2

 

In this second episode of Mob-Shop, I chat to the brilliant Nina Tame. Nina Tame is a disability activist and writer. She uses her fantastic Instagram page to talk about disability, ableism, disabled parenting, her journey to her disabled identity and beyond – if you don’t already follow her you definitely should be! She’s also a trained psychotherapist. Her experience of growing up disabled is a continual influence that runs through her work in becoming the disabled person she strives to be today. She also challenges the inherently ableist narratives and practices of non-disabled parenting of disabled children; weaving in her own experiences of being a disabled child whilst sharing how she brings up her young son who is also disabled. Wit, passion and lots of wheelchair selfies, Nina’s work explores the nuances of the disabled experience whilst contributing to the growing, diverse and brilliant online disabled community.

In this episode we ask why there are no accessible sex toys in mobility shops, if you can ever truly compliment someone’s mobility aid, and we discuss the timelines of our mobility aid journeys and the long and often convoluted route to acceptance of using them. Click below to listen and enjoy!
