Looking Glass #15: Disabilities and Fandom

lookingglasspodcast:

Heyyyy, New Episode!

It’s been a while, friends, but we’re back.

This month, we have Taylor as a guest host to talk Disability, representation, and fandom. This episode is a little longer than usual to make up for the single episode temporary schedule.

-First recollections of disability being presented in fandom
-XMen Days of Future Past and the exceptional Charles Xavier
-Disabled folks are not your inspiration porn
-The “cure” question in XMen
-What TFiOS got right
-Why does Peeta still have a leg though?
-Theme parks and accessibility
-Ty Blackthorn of Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire is sort of the best person ever.

Next time: Live from Leakycon with as many of my favorite people as we can fit in a hotel room, talking Fandom IRL.

New episode of my podcast up now, folks.  Check it out.
