Send us a Text Message.

Ever wonder how a zombie apocalypse would treat those with disabilities? Or what the barking of dogs might add to the quality of a podcast? Grab your headphones and join us as we navigate ableism in the zombie apocalypse. We discuss the unexpected potential of clay cats as currency in the apocalypse and the portrayal of people with disabilities in apocalyptic media. We're serving up a concoction of humor and depth that’ll have you pondering and chuckling in equal measure.

This episode is not just about survival against the odds; it's about the nuances of strength and the unexpected triumphs in adversity. As we recount the tales of Greg, our everyman turned hero in RPGs, and explore the lived experience of using a wheelchair, we're breaking down stereotypes and building up a narrative that's as diverse as our listener base. Characters from “The Walking Dead” like Connie and Herschel take the spotlight, as we examine how apocalypse narratives can either challenge or reinforce biases, and we share an array of survival tips that go beyond the normative expectations.

Finally, we wrap up with groans from the hoard and discuss underrated survival tools and muse on ideal locations for outliving the undead. Our journey is peppered with personal insights, a touch of whimsy, and a commitment to inclusivity that we hope resonates with you. So, let's celebrate the quirks and the quiet strengths that come into play when the world goes to zombies. Thanks for joining us, and remember, the end might be near, but so is the next episode of our podcast.
