In “Multifaceted Discourse” John discusses various topics and gives shout-outs. Here’s a summary of the episode:

The humorous and diverse “Multifaceted Discourse” delves into a smorgasbord of subjects, with the usual touch of self-deprecating charm.

Being a jazz vocalist is a real thing

We saw Kurt Elling & Charlie Hunter at Yoshi’s, where they always have a great accessible seating setup

It was cool to see a jazz vocalist headliner; they scat on every song

This could be a moment to rethink the A.D.A.’s framework. The Justice Department could take a larger role in enforcing the law, and Congress could amend the statute to give businesses a window to correct violations.

Evelyn Clark

We nearly take a thought-provoking turn reading The New York Times’ article, “It’s Time to Rethink the Americans With Disabilities Act,” shedding light on disability-related discussions.

Always Protect Yourself

A viewing of the film “Million Dollar Baby”; delving into thoughts on body limitations and the pursuit of perfection.

As Lennard Davis himself has written, “what is universal in life, if there are universals, is the experience of the limitations of the body”. Yet in films like Million Dollar Baby, and seemingly in every other ideological corner, we confront what Davis calls a “fantasy…of the perfection of the body and its activities”. We cannot step into this ring alone.

The episode then takes a poetic turn, inspired by Joe Imwalle. I’ve submitted my poetry around to some places and that’s a lot of fun and disheartening, but I’m more having fun with it.

Still need a lift

Wheelchair lift issues are ongoing.

Book Rundown

Book reviews include “2021 Best Sports Writing” anthology, Brandon Taylor’s “The Late Americans” and “Biography of a Phantom” by Mack McCormick.

Welcome to the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast, Season 6 Episode 22, “ADA Bars Keep Me From Falling.”

In the new episode, I have to admit that ADA bars have been useful. Tune in because this episode features sound effects. The guy who taught me to do production was really into sound effects, that was pretty much his only feedback. “Pretty good. You could add a couple of sound effects,” he’d say.

Disabled voices are just like regular voices, just like anybody. Using our voice makes it stronger, and it’s doubly true for disabled people who’ve been disenfranchised, and hidden away, and censored.
