Disability Sport at the Collegiate Level: An Interview with Kae McCarty

Welcome to the What's New in APE Podcast blog/podcast. In this episode, I had a conversation with Kae McCarty (@KM_McCarty) about the status of disability sports at the collegiate level. Ms. McCarty is completing her doctoral degree at Oregon State University, under her adviser Dr. Megan MacDonald, where she is conducting research around disability sport and college athletes. Ms. McCarty has authored both academic and editorial pieces, with her editorial "THE FIGHT ISN’T OVER, KEEP GOING: PRACTICING DISABILITY JUSTICE IN AN UNDER-VACCINATED NATION" being recently published with Visible Magazine. Within this discussion we discuss the types of disability sport available across the US, the importance of sport for college students with disabilities, the barriers that disrupt and prevent disability sports at a collegiate level, and the notion of disability sports sometimes being used as a form of "inspiration porn".
