    Tactile Traveler #2 - The Braille Trail, National Federation of the Blind Convention, Surviving Typhoons in the Philippines

    Tactile Traveler #2 - The Braille Trail, National Federation of the Blind Convention, Surviving Typhoons in the Philippines

    In this episode we will walk down a picturesque mountain trail designed to be experienced instead of viewed, join the largest number of blind people to ever be in one place at one time, and experience Typhoon damage in the Philippines.

    All of us on the show are volunteers, and since we all live in Colorado many of our early stories are from Colorado. And since all our stories will be reported from the prospective of blind people, and there are very few blind reporters, we will be giving  blind people the opportunity to become reporters.
