In episode #71 of No Free Rides, Tiffiny invites back the always sage and always charming, Mimi Emery, a paraplegic from Toronto. Mimi and Tiff discuss what it’s like to date someone in a wheelchair when you’re also a wheeler.
Mimi is dating a well-known extreme sports athlete who’s also paralyzed, and shares what it’s like and how to manage basic things like car transferring when both of you need to throw your chair in back, or dealing with other people’s misconceptions. They also talk about adapted downhill skiing and other fabulous, lesser known adapted sports.
