Today we integrate some of the events of our nation into our disability routines. We’re nine days from an attempted coup at the Capital Building in D.C. as the pandemic rages and vaccine hope arises. Three callers living with disability contribute to the program.
One of our elder listeners with a severe disability, Mylene, speaks of her problem getting vaccinated. Ed, another listener, brings his experience in living with depression and working for candidates in Georgia. Ed talks about his disappointment that people allowed the victory in Georgia to be overshadowed by the doom and gloom of the Capital take-over.
And, Buffalo gives a witty word-playful description of the capital insurrectionists introducing the concept of “errorists.”
Shelley Berman’s commentary wraps her personal experience getting vaccinated with the information about the Capital riot which continues to be exposed.
Adrienne Lauby, Mark Romoser and Eddie Ytuarte contributed to this program.
Produced by the Pushing Limits Collective, with help from KPFA Board Operator, Rod Akil.
