Ableism, accessibility and the power of a mother’s heart …
This is everything I love about podcasts; it’s funny, real, useful and has the most tender conversations brimming with love. In this episode, which was recorded in December 2022, Jessica Moxham, local mother and architect, talks about her book ‘The Cracks that Let the Light In’ on bringing up her disabled son; How complicated it is when our children are in hospital, making homes accessible and doing the best we can.
You can buy Jess’ book anywhere that sells good books but beware! As well as being beautifully written, it might just challenge your perspective on disability, ableism and if you’re listening on Audible, make you pull over in the car to ugly cry. It’s crammed with the complexity, beauty and power of a mother’s heart with a side helping of smashing the patriarchy.
You can find everything Jess across social media
You can also listen to her on women’s hour:
