Our 19th LowDown brings us the largest organization we've ever had on the podcast - The Special Olympics. What the Special Olympics has done since their inception and founding by Eunice Shriver is nothing short of astonishing. Listen to CEO Janet Froetscher describe their history, what they're up to today, and how they have impacted this world. Enjoy the ride!

The LowDown #18 brings two incredible women pioneering within the disability community. Katie Driscoll is first up at the 2:35 mark. Katie founded and runs Changing the Face of Beauty. She's been featured on The Today Show, CNN, and People Magazine, among others. And now she gets to be a guest on the LD - how huge! Then we bring on THE Diane Grover around the 1:10:25 mark. Diane was the founder of The International Down Syndrome Coalition(IDSC), then after retiring from that she has now formed Dreamers Coffee House, which she is the owner and operator. This is a very unique and cool idea which we hope has huge success. Listen and enjoy the ride!
