Sharon Wachsler is a writer, diability-rights and environmental activist, and a service-dog trainer. She lives in rural Western Mass., and is contemplating chickens. She was the co-founder and editor of the first cross-disability literary publication entirely written, edited, and produced by people with disabilities, Breath & Shadow. Some recent books that have her stuff in them are Are We Feeling Better Yet? Women Speak about Health Care in America, Visible: A Femmethology, and Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures. She plans to turn her Sick Humor series of cartoons and essays into a blog once she regains her sense of humore.

What I'm Listening To: 

A lot of books! Also, streaming This American Life.

What I'm Watching: 

Nothing at the moment. I'm mourning the end ofTop Chef 5 and torturously awaiting the beginning of Project Runway 6. When I do drag my tuchas to the couch, it's to watch The Daily Show or The Colbert Report.

What I'm Reading: 

I have a print disability, so I'm listening to The United States of Arugula by David Kamp, My Body Politic by Simi Linton (fantastic memoir), and, when I can find someone to record it, Naked in the Promised Land by Lillian Faderman.
