Ability Media hosts various podcasts such as "Different Lights" with Alena Galan and "Behind the Mind" with Kevin Meiselman. Find them below!
This is a podcast about people with different abilities and how they are shaped by their experiences. Hosted by Alena Galan, an alum of Quinnipiac University, the podcast hopes to change a common perception: that people with disabilities are somehow unable to follow their dreams.
The podcast is a production of the Quinnipiac University Podcast Studio in partnership with Ability Media, and is produced by David DesRoches, director of community programming.
On "Behind the Mind", host Kevin Meiselman interviews guests who have experienced mental health struggles (i.e., anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, PTSD, etc.) to help fight the stigma surrounding mental illness and raise awareness. This show provides a platform for people to share stories of personal adversity to inspire hope in those currently suffering. It’s also meant to enlighten and inform people who are unfamiliar with mental health struggles and the problems they create. Having overcome his own share of mental health struggles, Kevin believes in the importance of opening up to better the lives of others.
Welcome to Moving Forward with Achilles CT, presented by U-Haul. Achilles CT is the Connecticut chapter of Achilles International, a global, non-profit organization that looks to transform the lives of people with disabilities by pairing athletes with disabilities and medical conditions with runners without disabilities in order to become active, set goals, and lower barriers to live a fulfilling life. Host Clever Streich introduces the inspirational athletes, guides, volunteers and leaders that make up the Achilles CT community, as we hear their stories and they share their experiences.
