A Better Way with Kirt Roskoph of The World of Ability Podcast

Do you consider yourself as having a disability?

This episode of Causepods highlights a unique perspective, one where we take a look at the question "do you have a disability?" Kurt presents a view that, typically, most people will not identify as someone who has a disability unless you receive a rating from the government. 

To identify as someone with a disability means you have less abilities than others. Kurt's podcast takes that idea of less, flips it on its head, and says; let's not focus on what you don't have, but let's focus on what we do have. 

We all have abilities, and we all have disabilities that are less great than others. Not everyone has the ability to make a slam dunk in basketball, but we don't choose to label ourselves as disabled. We just simply say we are not at good. 

An episode rich in perspective, insights, hope for a better way of thinking on a globally important topic.
