Also, many listeners ask if we’ve done a show on this or that topic.  We’ve tried to make it easy to find episodes in our archive of nearly 250 shows.  Rather than scrolling through all of the titles to find what you are looking for, try using the handy search feature on our web site to find shows of interest.
 
Just put a keyword, topic, or show number into the search field and you will get a list of shows matching the search criterion along with a summary of each episode and links to the audio and show notes for that episode.
 
Some special keywords of interest that you can use are:
 
pioneer – this will return a list of episodes in which we interviewed pioneers or leaders in the blindness field like Ted Henter, Jim Fruchterman, Deane Blazie, etc.
employment – this will return a list of shows in which we interviewed visually impaired professionals in a variety of fields.
science – this will return a list of shows about science and STEM education for the blind, interviews with visually impaired scientists, tools for working in science, etc.
