SIM Ep 486 Chops 199: Places Molly McCully Brown has taken her body

American poet and essayist Molly McCully Brown’s latest book, Places I’ve Taken My Body, is a collection of personal essays that travel the physical, emotional and mental journeys of a life in all its frustration, pain, limitations, joy, humour and colour, told through Molly’s lens of living with cerebral palsy. 

Molly chats to Mickey about disability and desire, treating a body with kindness (and how hard that can be), the sheer stop-everything-and-watch-it-now excellence of the documentary Crip Camp, and activism by necessity not choice.
