Video is closed-captioned, and the transcript is below!
In this live (recording) of our Google hangout, we chat about disability and Star Trek, including the episodes: “The Managerie,” “Melora,” “Ethics,” “The Loss,” and “Is There in Truth No Beauty?” We also discussed Geordi LaForge and the portrayal of blind characters, whether or not Data represents disability, and so much more!
The guests were:
- Alice Wong of The Disability Visibility Project, @DisVisability and @SFdirewolf on Twitter
- Andrew Pulrang of Disability Thinking, @AndrewPulrang on Twitter
- Zack Kline, a former podcast guest and blind gamer, @zkline on Twitter
- Day Al-Mohamed, writer and disability advocate at her personal website. @DalAlmohamed on Twitter
Thank you to all my guests for a wonderful discussion!
And thank you to Todd for transcribing this hangout!
