This week Ryan and Rob sit down with fellow podcaster John Grimes of the Ambiguously Blind podcast to talk about his vision loss journey after a life threatening bout of Meningitis, how it impacted his life, how the podcast came about in an effort to help spread awareness.
This week it’s not only the biggest episode we’ve ever done, but one of the most important. We’re packing the Anti-Gloom Zoom Room full this week as Rob, Ryan, Lis, and Steve welcome the members of the Triple Vision Podcast – Peter Field, Charlie Ayotte, Hanna Leavitt, and David Best – to talk about their show which aims to rebuild the narrative of the experience of Blind Canadians in history through research and personal stories. They discuss the podcast’s origins and the importance of ensuring that the story of Canadians who are blind or partially sighted are told by the community and not lost to time. You don’t want to miss this jam-packed episode!
Rob, Ryan, and Lis welcome Chad Bouton, producer and creator of the new podcast Hindsight is 20/200 to the show this week to discuss the show and its origins, mandate, and how it’s evolved after three months.
Yes folks, it’s that time once again! Break out the shot glasses, AT Banter is another year older! Join Rob, Ryan, and Lis as they celebrate the show beginning its 7th year by discussing some of the challenges and joys of producing a weekly podcast and the impact it has on them personally. It’s an inside look into the show and a tribute to the audience and the guests that make the show possible. Plus there’s alcohol and silliness.
It’s the last episode of 2021 and Rob and Ryan welcome guest host Lis Malone for the last time as they share some BIG show news and discuss a few of their favorite episodes of the year before giving 2021 proper farewell!
Mental health and the notion of self-care and self-love can be something many of us overlook in our busy, everyday lives. This week the boys are excited to welcome Jillian Gillis to the show to talk about her new(ish) podcast called Self Love is Blind, a show that discusses these concepts through the lens of disability.
This week Steve, Rob, and Ryan welcome Robin Christopherson, head of Digital Inclusion at AbilityNet to the podcast where they discuss everything from web overlays (yes, we know … again) and the impact of digital accessibility to his daily podcast, Dot to Dot where he features new skills of the Amazon Echo devices.
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!
Can you believe it’s been two years and over 100 episodes? We take a break from our regular format and invite friend of the show and owner of Chaos Technical Services Rick Chant into the Guitar Dungeon where we reminisce and engage in some free form conversations. We talk about everything from the state of AI Assistants to the idea of disability as loss and everything in between, including Gibraltar monkeys. Yes, you read that right – you’ll just have to listen to see how that happens. So, break out the tequila shots and join us for this Birthday episode!
