Our goal for this podcast is to breakdown the social world one topic at a time. Come join us each week as we tackle a new topic using our sociological imagination!

Me Before You? The Fault in Our Stars? Chicken Soup for the Soul? Popular culture representations of disability and the disabled community have shown us the dramatic sides of the disability status. How can we better understand disability? Guest star future-Dr. Hillary Steinberg joins us today to talk about the sociology of disability as well as her working in a children's hospital. We outline the three conceptual models of disability, critique the popular culture and disability porn representations, and untangle labels such as 'neurodivergent' and 'differently abled'. Join us to learn more about a field of sociology that isn't often talked about!
