How Music Heals

How Music Heals

This episode feels like a throwback of the early days of this podcast. Limited audio quality, a bigger focus on the local activists scene and most of all: just me chatting with a friend. Isabel used to live in the same city as me, before moving back to Madrid. Together we’ve always talked about mental health, pop-culture and how music heals.

Without getting into the details of how a person gets chronic pain, this episode’s main focus is ableism. Thankfully, Isa is a kind and forgiving friend, who I can ask hard questions about this matter. Based on personal experiences we discover the nuances of dealing with a disabled friend. It’s never easy and always very tiring but at the end of the day music heals.

What’s more this episode: nerding out about Spain in the 70s. Spain’s recent history has been quite different from the rest of Europe. I won’t get into details here, but I’ll leave some links in the shownotes.

CW: ableism, living under fascism, queerphobia
