Work & Life: Cat Mitchell & Dan Holloway on Disability & Accessibility in Publishing
Show Notes

I catch up with Cat & Dan and we discuss Cat's research on disability in publishing, as well as all things friction, especially related to accessibility and disability. We talk about CV gaps, how accommodating accommodations are, the way reasonable adjustments can make a huge difference to people, and how reducing friction can make things more accessible.
