The cover for this podcast foregrounds a circular photo. The photo is set outdoors and shows Dani Izzie, a white disabled mother with long brown hair holding two infants. Dani is using a power chair and wears a soft white cardigan, the twins wear floppy hats and matching milk and cookie onesies. The design behind the picture is blue audio wavelength, peaking and dipping as it radiates out to the sides. The text reads: DisTopia. In a Flash. Episode 4, Dani's Twins Pt. 1. Hosted by Jessica Stokes.

In A Flash: New Episode

Disabled moms aren’t counted in most maternity statistics, and we aren’t found on the pages of obstetrics textbooks. Enter Dani’s Twins: a documentary about disability cultural advocate and quadriplegic mom Dani Izzie offering a rare and intimate look at the creativity, adaptation, and joy woven into disabled pregnancy and parenthood. This episode is the first of a two part series. In part one, we’ll talk with Dani about the role of creativity and community in the everyday life of a disabled mom. In part two of this series, we’ll zoom out to consider the role of creativity in transforming policy for disabled parents as we talk to the producer of Dani’s Twins, aspiring dad, and disability policy expert: Andy Arias.
