Alannah Murray #PlatformsNotPedestals Ep. 101

Some people have a magic ability to make you feel more optimistic about the world. Our guest in the downstairs tortoise shack, film maker, blogger and activist, Alannah Murray is one such person.
We discuss the inequalities the world imposes on people with disabilities, her own experiences, negative and positive and some of the best dark disability humour ever put on a podcast.

The message is clear; don’t patrnoise people with disabilities, don’t put them on a pedestal because of their disability. Do platform them, and then get out of the way.
