Seeing Erin Hagerty

Erin Hagerty died last year at the age of 62. She lived an extraordinary life by doing things many would consider ordinary.

Born with cerebral palsy, Hagerty did not let her disability define her. She loved attending concerts, going to the beach, traveling and spending time with her family and friends. She was a breast cancer survivor, an advocate for people with disabilities and an actively involved community member. This WLIW-FM special examines not so much what Hagerty did, as how she was seen by strangers, family and most importantly, herself.

Bob McKinnon, host of the podcast “Attribution,” talks with Hagerty’s mother, her four siblings, as well as with documentary filmmaker and activist Dan Habib.
