Embodied Radio Show: Latest Episode
An illustration of a person coming out of the page of a large open book. You can see their body from the waist up. They have light-tone skin and short, dark hair, and they're wearing a green striped shirt. Their right arm is amputated from the elbow down, and they're reaching up with their left arm, almost touching fingers with a wheelchair user who is on the outside of the book. The wheelchair user is femme-presenting with dark-tone skin and medium-length dark hair in a ponytail. She's wearing a pink button-down dress. There is a heart behind the two hands that are almost touching, and the words "Embodied Written" are in the upper left hand corner of the illustration.
