IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE:
(31 mins) In this episode, host Becca Lory, CAS, BCCS and guest co-host Dena Gassner welcome back Dora Raymaker, Ph.D.. As you may recall, Dora is a scientist, writer, multi-media artist, and activist whose work across disciplines focuses on social justice, critical systems thinking, complexity science, and the value of diversity. Dora is a research assistant professor at Portland State University in the School of Social Work, where she leads community-engaged services research in collaboration with disability communities. Dora is a queer, autistic person with a deep love of soft yarn, restless cities, extreme writing events, and hard-boiled cyber-noir. Her latest book is titled Hoshi and the Red City Circuit. The three discuss Dora’s new book, how writing became important to her at a very early age, and why people with autism rarely are the protagonists in fiction.
