You might have noticed that disability related content is popping up on your feed more than usual. Peta and Psychologist Stephanie Fornasier discuss if all disability representation is a positive thing and how it is influencing how disability is seen in wider society.
This conversation was motivated after Peta listened to another podcast called Honestly, where disability representation online, is discussed in at times hurtful and disempowering manner.
As a disabled person, Peta wanted to talk to psychologist Steph to see if her reactions were clouded by her personal experience or if in fact the perspectives on The Honestly podcast were as hurtful as she perceived them to be.
