From WXXI News' Inclusion Desk comes a podcast about eight young people with disabilities transitioning into adulthood

This month our news department has launched a new podcast called Exited, which introduces listeners to a group of teens with disabilities who are transitioning into adulthood. The podcast is led by reporter Karen Shakerdge from WXXI News’ Inclusion Desk, which is a multi-platform reporting effort to inform and transform attitudes and behavior about inclusion. You can listen to Exited it online at exitedpodcast.org or where ever you subscribe to your podcasts. 

The podcast is part of  Move to Include, an initiative that started more than 15 years ago when we partnered with the Al Sigl Community of Agencies for Dialogue on Disability. Al Sigl and WXXI envisioned a project with even bigger community impact and together we worked with the Golisano Foundation to create Move to Include. Through programming and special events, the initiative works to promote inclusion for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. To learn more about the initiative, visit movetoinclude.org.
