Welcome to Atypical Truth
Growing up with disabilities and now as a mom of two children with disabilities, I created this podcast to amplify the stories of those within my community - the community of people living with rare diseases, disabilities, and complex medical conditions.
It is a true passion to collaborate with others to build their storytelling skills in an effort to help them use their storied life experiences as a tool for advocacy and change.
Contact me if you would like to join me for a supported storytelling collaboration.
Carefully designed and articulated project.
Relevant and brave topic. Pushing against the 'tyranny of cheerfulness' is a noble cause.
I commend this project for providing a vulnerable space for people who often aren't allowed vulnerability. Using a podcast and autoethnography as a means of the digital humanities/social sciences is an ambitious prospect and a way to bridge the public, the personal, and the academic.
