The Accessible Stall
The Accessible Stall is a podcast dedicated to open, honest conversation about disability issues. We (Emily Ladau and Kyle Khachadurian, the hosts) are breaking ground in the podcasting space as one of very few shows regularly addressing disability. We have a strong, dedicated listenership and engaged fans on social media. Our podcast places us in a unique position, allowing us to reach beyond the echo chambers in which the disability community tends to exist, educating and connecting with people who do not have familiarity with disability experiences. This is absolutely crucial, especially in the world in which we currently live, where disability is far too often overlooked and misunderstood. Thus far, we’ve covered topics ranging from fun (such as accessibility and Pokemon Go) to serious (such as disability and sexual assault). We also discuss current events from the disability perspective. To add depth to our conversations and amplify diverse voices, we occasionally invite guests to join our discussions. In July 2017, we were awarded a grant from the Awesome Foundation to further our work in the disability space. In August 2017, our show received a shout-out on NPR's podcast, "The Big Listen." We are working steadily to expand our impact beyond podcasting through speaking engagements, and in June 2018, will be keynoting a conference for youth with disabilities led by the Virginia Department of Education. As podcasting continues to grow as a key form of media, we are ready and excited to continue blazing a trail with The Accessible Stall. Our podcast will provide a platform for your advertisements to reach a unique group of listeners who are interested in social justice issues and dedicated to making a difference in the world.
