This past July, I was fortunate enough to be asked to speak about my experiences as The Disabled Foodie on the always entertaining, hunger-inducing, and informative The Sporkful podcast with Dan Pashman (the host of The Sporkful) and John Hockenberry of The Takeaway podcast. I am very honored and excited to have been included in this episode of The Sporkful, and I thank Dan and Anne Saini (The Sporkful producer) for having me there, and I am especially excited to share it with all of the readers of The Disabled Foodie.

During a great meal at The Good Fork in Brooklyn (They make an amazing burger, as an aside.) John and I talked with Dan about our experiences in restaurants as people who use wheelchairs.
