The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) announced the launch of the MDA Quest Podcast, a powerful vehicle to present thoughtful conversation regarding issues and barriers facing members of the neuromuscular disease (NMD) and other disability communities as well as the people who love them.
The podcasts will educate and inform, demystify, inspire, perpetuate progress and entertain. Motivational speaker, author, writer and podcast host, Mindy Henderson, who lives with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), is the host of the MDA Quest Podcast. As of this week, Henderson has also been named the MDA Editor-in-Chief of Quest content, including a quarterly magazine, blog, newsletter and this podcast.
“We created the Quest Podcast to shine a light on the lives of people who live with a disability,” said Henderson. “The podcast format will make it possible for us to take a deep dive into the issues affecting our community and the topics that are on everyone’s mind, like travel, dating, accessibility in architecture and employment, to name a few.”
“We are proud to launch the Quest Podcast hosted by the amazing Mindy Henderson,” said Kristine Welker, Chief of Staff for MDA. “As part of our ‘Disability as Diversity’ movement, this podcast will not only be empowering for people with disabilities, it will also serve as a tool of education and insight for a broader audience, to help everyone start to see a world where inclusion is the norm and people see possibilities instead of limitations.”
The Quest Podcast episodes launch with these three episodes, followed by monthly episodes. Future topics will include universal architecture, dating and relationships, employment, accessible travel and more.
