Capturing Cerebral Palsy with Jerron Herman

Dancer and artist, Jerron Herman talks about life with cerebral palsy, the limitations of our definitions especially when it comes to defining health and wellness or masculinity, and the importance of our genuine expression in building community. ⁣

Through a myriad of technical difficulties and obstacles, in this episode we reflect on Jerron's journey thus far, the importance of parents that will advocate for you and discovering ways to laugh through it all.
