Episode 26: A Visual World ft. Brandon Schiafone
That we live in a visual world is a challenge that many people who are blind interact with every day, but for Brandon Schiafone that's just par for the course. Having gone blind when he was young, Brandon adapted, and adapted well. By putting systems in place to help him through our visual world, Brandon has created an environment where, as a blind man, he thrives. How? Well, it starts with asking the necessary questions, refusing to put yourself in a box, and being ready to have a real and open conversation about the challenges many of us face. Discussing Toronto's accessibility, the concept of 'ableism', and overcoming our obstacles.
