For the first time, DIVERSIFY welcomes two guests to the podcast! Libby Welsh and Jack Silver joined us to talk about the D/deaf community, how ableism (discrimination in favour of able-bodied people) affects every aspect of life and why it’s important we all become aware of it.
Libby Welsh is a dancer and actress who is part of the D/deaf community. Jack Silver is a writer and theatre director. He’s also our first straight white man guest. Well, we guess it had to happen eventually…
