Ep 31: Disabled Inventors


Today’s episode is about disabled inventors, featuring an interview with Jane Hartman Adamé, Co-Founder and Co-Inventor of Keela Cup, a new menstrual cup designed for all types of bodies and abilities.

Along with Co-Founder and Co-Inventor Andy Miller, Jane designed Keela Cup using what she calls disability-driven design. You’ll hear Jane talk about the origins of Keela Cup, the importance of controlling your own narrative, and how her recent diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome changed the trajectory of Jane’s life and career as an entrepreneur. This interview was originally recorded at StoryCorps on February 2, 2018 as part of the Disability Visibility Project.
