There are facebook groups but I'd like to have podcasts, too.  Perhaps the
Nation's blind podcast or an offshoot of that could have a similar
structure with topics.

Some years ago, the Braille Institute of America produced a series called
Sound Solutions. This series discussed a variety of topics including home
management, cooking, daily independent living skills, and a few other
things. There are even a couple of episodes on what to do if a loved one or
family member goes blind.


These programs came out before the iPhone and all the digital technology we
now have. For what it's worth, the link is




I've revisited this series from time to time. Hearing it has me thinking:
Is there a need for a current, up to date podcast series discussing topics
such as safe cooking, home management, and the use of alternative
techniques of blindness.


One thing I notice listening again to this series is that they're highly
produced. Since this is coming out of Los Angeles, I'm not surprised they
did that.


Here's my thinking. While we have our excellent training centers, I realize
that in rural parts of the country, it's more difficult to find resources.
However, I do notice that the Hadley Institute is also offering workshops.


Also, I've seen a lot of mainstream books, especially on how to organize
your house, that we can use. I myself have taken tips from a lot of these
mainstream books that are on Bard and Audible.


So is there a need for a topical podcast on such things as home management
and cooking? If no, I can understand why. If yes, what could we do


Any thoughts? Thanks.
