Show Notes

It’s the show that never fails to disappoint and bring the big topics to life in our weekly discussion with the Blind Guy and his team.

Today it’s the turn of Steven Scott, Shaun Preece, Sally Clay and Robin Christopherson to talk about the continuing discussion on disability pride. The conversation also turns into a chat around simulated spectacles, often used by charities and organisations to show people what certain eye conditions are like? Are we happy about that as blind people, and what would be said if someone was to offer a simulation experience of a black man or a woman? Would that be acceptable or appropriate?
