Just discovered Rachel Zucker has a podcast with other 70 lengthy episodes. It's not close read analysis, thank god, but meandering conversations @CommonplacePod An expanse of comfort/wonderment to get me thru so much more sleepless isolation. https://t.co/Vfsalj560Y — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 31, 2020

8. The most celebratory part of this depressing story is that the two ppl in the #NPR#ADA segment were women and POC. Thank you @judithheumann and @Imani_Barbarinhttps://t.co/oyEzPiJpFS — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

7. (I should say that yesterday on @NPR, I heard a good deal about how now, on top on Covid, disabled ppl were about to be doubly fucked by the hurricane season.) — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

6. Yes, there was a good deal about foreign statuary. But in hours of radio, there was only 1 story about the living breathing humans who brought about the #ADA and who depend on the ADA. — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

5. I scanned thru 100s of segments on the app and heard many many stories about 45, Covid, the economy, Portland protestors (absurdly eclipsing #BLM actions). I even heard a few stories about how other countries deal with their statues. — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

4. Instead, I just put on #NPR like I usually do and expected to hear ADA -related stories. I listened for hours; while cooking, cleaning the kitchen, taking care of pets, showering, doing, data entry. — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

3. So, I did not attend any of the online streaming events for #ADA30, though I know the impact campaign staff around the Crip Camp documentary hosted a really good one. (Mind you, Crip Camp, the film and associated projects, Is something to feel celebratory about.) — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

2. And more acutely, there is the way #Covid has revealed, more than ever, how rampant ableism is in society and certainly in my home state of Florida. — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

1. I was feeling less than celebratory about the 30th anniversary of the #ADA, which was today. I've have long had activist fatigue around slow, condescending change, and feel burned about by various systems of oppression (which include business-as-usual bureaucracy). — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 27, 2020

Hearing @judithheumann covered by a show as important and mainstream liberal as OTM was validating. AND it was painful to hear Brooke Gladstone admit that ppl in the #CripCamp doc were not normally the kind of ppl she would have the patience to listen to. https://t.co/Tk7iBkZ5Ys — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 25, 2020

Thrilled that 2/3 of this show focuses on disability justice, I rely on this show to help me parse layers of media narrative. Then, crushed when Bob Garfield uses the term "wheelchair-bound". https://t.co/CS7anNCQRx — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 25, 2020

2. referring to that show is problematic for a lot of reasons (being dated, 90's inspo porn, etc) and Yet, it really impacted me when I was a disabled preteen. Thoughts? — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 21, 2020

1. Thinking about that 1993 show "Life Goes On" in which the main character has Downs Syndrome, goes thru high school, and I think goes on to have a baby with his partner. I'm giving a sex and dating talk for disabled teens w/intellectual disabilities and I feel like referring — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 21, 2020

I should contextualize by saying I'm trying to reckon with the Latino (they wouldn't identify as Latinx) small town, Spanish immigrant (via Cuba and Puerto Rico) that I come from in Florida. https://t.co/U7D4OANKCe — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 13, 2020

For anyone surprised or confused by the side Goya CEO took, realize that he is a third-generation white Spaniard. Actually, this Oscars/Banderas controversy sheds a lot of light on it https://t.co/o71sN2pX6N — amber dipietra (@thebodypoetik) July 12, 2020
