Since launching the disability satire publication, The Squeaky Wheel, Steven Verdile has joined numerous podcasts and interviews (with Emily Ladeau, Forbes and others) on the intersection of disability and humor. Joined by other disabled humorists from The Squeaky Wheel, the panel will cover topics including the importance of on-screen representation, and why comedy is such a powerful tool in combatting ableism.

ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York is the largest festival in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with disabilities. The weeklong festival is renowned for its wide-ranging international film selection, riveting conversations, and performances, presented annually across the New York metropolitan area.
