This week the boys welcome Josh Summers and Melina Nathanail from National Captioning Canada into the Anti-Gloom Zoom Room to discuss .. you guessed it, captioning! Captioning has been around for so long that it’s hard not to take it for granted, so we dive into some of the history behind it and look at the process of how much of the content we see is produced.
It’s crowded to capacity this week in our Anti-Gloom Zoom Room as the boys welcome Shawn Marsolais, Executive Director of Blind Beginnings back to the show to talk about the organization’s new podcasting project– but this time she isn’t alone! Keisha, Clement, and Nika are all co-hosts of the new Limitless Podcast and together they tell us about why they started the podcast, what makes it important and very personal to them, and much more. We even have sheep on this episode, and if you think we’re kidding, dive into the episode and see for yourself!
No one knows the importance of Assistive Technology in the workplace better than our guest this week, Nate Toevs from the Neil Squire Society. Nate visits us in the Anti-Gloom Zoom Room to tell us all about the Neil Squire Society and its mission of assisting people with disabilities develop the skills and training needed to enter the workforce.
It’s a party! Not only are we celebrating Canada Day this week in the Anti-Gloom Zoom Room, but Ryan, Rob, and Steve also raise a glass and talk to Albert Ruel, Get Together With Technology Coordinator for the Canadian Council of the Blind, who is officially retiring. We talk about his career as an employee of the CNIB and CCB as well as aspects of technology and even how he initially lost his sight.
