In this week’s amp’d podcast, Peggy and I take on a law that affects every person with limb loss/difference every day: The Americans With Disabilities Act. The post arose out of questions sent to us by one of our listeners, a bilateral amputee who sometimes uses a wheelchair at college.
In this discussion, we provide a summary of how the ADA protects all people with disabilities (including amputees), take a close look at those portions of the law that have the biggest day-to-day impact on us, and share information about which governmental agencies you should contact if you believe an ADA violation has occurred.
Nearly as important, Peggy and I take a small step towards podcast professionalism with the inclusion of (gasp) intro and outro music on the podcast. The composer of this stunning piece is none other than Max McGill, whose creative juices are apparently in full flow coming off a week spent in early January recording his band’s new EP (stay tuned for more on that in the future). Enjoy!
