Our essay this week is an oldie but a cute one. I dug into the archives of my old blog and found this sweet story about my first job. It was a great way to kick writer’s block this week!
Then I chat with Elizabeth Knox, disability and inclusion consultant, speaker, and attorney in Dallas, TX. Elizabeth shares with us some of her experiences growing up deaf, including meeting her husband in deaf school. They have a hearing daughter together, which creates an interesting dynamic that is surprisingly not so different than you might expect. We chat about how simple it is to make things more accessible to all, including this podcast (which now features a transcript with every episode!). Elizabeth now works to help others advocate for themselves and their needs.
Learn more about Elizabeth’s work (or better yet, hire her!) at accessthedream.com. You can also find her on Facebook at facebook.com/accessthedream.
Transcript for today’s episode available here.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: memoir, contemporary literary fiction, short stories
