I have been thinking about doing this podcast for a long time, so here we are.
First of all I want to justify my choice to talk about “disability”.
I am myself visually impaired but the point is not to talk about me.
I want to take a fresh look at disability and give you food for thought in relation with this topic.
Disability is a society concern just like “gender” or “race” issues.
But I have noticed that each time that people try to talk about disability it is the same story (overall in my home country!): they make a drama out of it and it always goes into compassion or exaggerated admiration for people who managed to do something they were not expected to, because of their “disability”.
I would like, for once, to talk about it in an optimistic way, showing that what we call “disability” may not exist at all in the sense we currently give to it!
The question I want to ask in this first episode is: and if we were all disabled in a certain extent? What would remain about the concept of disability used to put people in a category they cannot escape and which slow their life fulfilment?
If disability does exist, in a way, I want to argue that it can be or, better, it must be a driving force in human life.
So let’s see what we can make out of it…
