What is BroadcastAbility?

BroadcastAbility is a podcast series chronicling the experiences of people with visible physical and/or sensory disabilities who have successfully surmounted barriers to employment, as well as managers and businesses leaders at inclusive workplaces. It is an extension of the multi-year investigative work on disability and employment conducted by researchers at The PROUD Project (Phenomenological Research/Remedies on Employment and Disability) at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Easter Seals Canada is proud to work with The PROUD Project on the BroadcastAbility podcast initiative. To learn more about The PROUD Project, visit their website at

Call-Out for Music/Musician!

The PROUD Project is currently producing a podcast mini-series about disability and employment, and we are looking for music to use in our episodes.

We would like to invite musicians from the disabled community to submit their original compositions of around 2 minutes total (around 20 seconds for intro music, 20 seconds for outro music, and some transition music). The successful candidate will receive an honorarium of $600 in exchange for the licence to use their music in our podcast.

We have a tight timeline, so interested musicians should contact by August 15, 2021.
