Take Me To Them
Gimphacks is the disability podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously. For people with paraplegia, quadriplegia, spina bifida, paralysis, and more! Here are some of our recent episodes:

Cheers or Jeers: Benjamin Yonattan on America’s Got Talent

How do you know if a person with a disability succeeds because of their inspiring story alone – or does it matter? Last night on America’s Got Talent Judge’s Cuts (essentially the semi-finals) 14-year old visually impaired dancer Benjamin Yonattan got put through to compete at the finals at Radio City Music Hall… but should he have been sent home instead? Is Benjamin Yonattan’s story a case of inspiration porn, writ large? I’m torn, but Tod was unequivocal. We’ll definitely be talking about Yonattan and his second audition on the next episode, so tell us what you think! Leave a comment below so we can have your thoughts in our next... read more

When Wheelchairs Meet Airplanes

Sure, airplanes CAN take you and your wheelchair — question is: how likely is it they’ll screw something up. (Spoiler: Likely.)

We recorded this on a beach in Mexico to talk all about travelling, airplanes, and cruiseships. Plus we open the mailbag to read a comment about our last episode, Playing the Gimp Card.

Pulling the Gimp Card

In this episode, we talk about when it’s appropriate to “pull the gimp card,” we discuss the ethics of sexual surrogacy, and we debate whether a bank’s ad showing a disabled woman is inspiring or an evil marketing ploy. Here are the commercials we mentioned: And here’s the French ad Jocelyn talked... read more

Devotees, The Final Chapter

In this episode, we talk to a devotee/admirer about why he’s sexually attracted to amputees and people in wheelchairs. Then we talk to a woman amputee (here’s her YouTube channel and Facebook Page) about why she befriends devotees. We also talk about labels (will we ever be able to reclaim “cripple”?) and much more!
