Podcasts for the deaf

hand sign for Auslan, deaf language

“If you’re a hearing person, you might not expect that podcasts would be popular with people who are deaf or are hard of hearing. But you’d be wrong. Miri Josephs is a podcaster who also considers herself part of the deaf community. She joins this episode to explain why it’s important to make podcasts, and radio, more accessible to people with hearing disabilities. She also offers tips for making your show more accessible to people with a range of hearing ability.

Miri also tells us about the podcast she co-hosts, called “Always Here: An LGBT History Podcast.” writes Paul Riismandel, co-founder and operations director of Radio Survivor.
