As a woman who gained a visual impairment as an adult, I continue to seek out resources. Podcasts fill this information gap. Programs can serve as an outlet for education as well as entertainment. Here are a few shows I listen to regularly which are produced and/or hosted by people with disabilities:
Vital stats: Weekly show which lasts about 20 minutes for the “Inside Ouch” features and about 50 minutes for the full programs.

Vital stats: Weekly show lasts about 20 minutes per episode.

Vital stats: Most of the panel shows are monthly and last from 30 to 50 minutes. The other tech updates and random tips and guides can appear weekly and are as short as a couple of minutes each.

RIP, High Contrast. It was a podcast featuring a panel of people with visual impairments, but it ended. Its archives are still online as of today.
Would you ever listen to a podcast about living with a disability? What would you want to find out from a particular show? Is there a program about disability that you listen to that I did not mention? Tell me about it.
