Joe Entwisle on policy and personal challenges of living with quadriplegia

I loved my Bloggingheads conversation with disability policy expert Joe Entwisle, AKA @wheelieboy.

We covered many personal and policy issues. Unfortunately the production values for the conversation are reminiscent of those old Star Trek episodes in which the Romulans were jamming the intra-galactic signal. That was a wifi issue, not Bloggingheads’ fault.
