Writing About Disability

In this episode, we’re talking about physical disability. How do we portray disabilities in fiction? How should we portray them? What are we doing right? What are we doing wrong?

James McPherson joins us to examine how disabilities are portrayed in works like Fury Road, Avatar, Game of Thrones, Evil Dead and Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis.
