On episode 250 of Disability After Dark, I sit down with my new friend with Cerebral Palsy; social worker and self-proclaimed benefits policy lover, Kathleen Downes. We talk about the shitty benefit system in the United States, the disability community and our internal struggles with each other. Kathleen shares her journey with catheters and the joys of lots of people seeing her naked and not in the fun way…. Plus, so much more! Enjoy this one, I sure did!
