This week, my guest is the fab Kaite McKenna.
Kaite is a spoken word poet, writer, and interviewer based in Sydney, Australia. She lives with Chiari Malformation and syringomyelia, painful neurological conditions that affect the spinal cord. To date, she has undergone two brain surgeries to handle her conditions. From her professional and personal experience, she has become a vocal advocate for disability rights, LGBTQ rights, and women’s rights.
I’ll be talking to Kaite about her poetry, other writing and advocacy work on this week’s show. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
I’ll also be talking to Nicola and Christine from The Shaw Centre about Unicorns, Zombies and Other Stories, a book of children’s stories produced as part of a creative writing project at the centre. And you can also hear my review of dressed at HOME Manchester.
