Content Warning - Mention of Suicide 

In today's show, I am joined by Dr. Merrick Pilling (@chillingwithdr.pilling), an Assistant Professor in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Windsor. We talk about his two new books - Queer and Trans Madness: Struggles for Social Justice and Interrogating Psychiatric Narratives of Madness: Documented Lives co-edited with Dr. Andrea Daley.  We also discuss the importance of Mad Studies-based interventions,  the absence of racialized and queer and trans mad people’s experiences in the field, the challenges of academic publishing, and of course, the different ways disability can save the world…
