Welcome to the Unsung Sluts Podcast - Episode 21, a look at two amazing differently-abled women. In this episode, Stacie tells us about the life and activism of Haben Girma, a woman born deaf-blind who has committed her life and career to making the world a better place for people with disabilities and Tabitha tells us about the adventures of Annette Kellerman, whose childhood illnesses and disabilities led to stardom.
