    #30 - Nas Campanella

    When you listen to the radio, watch the TV or even listen to certain podcasts everyday you’ll hear the term “newsreader”. You would think a prerequisite would be the ability to 'see' the news you're reading? And for many years Nas Campanella, who lost her vision as a child, did just that but in her own unique way. She “read” by listening. You may know Nas from her time at Triple J and with the help of incredible tech support she was the first in the world to “read" the News by relaying her scripts through an automated speech reader all while panelling the studio, timing her news to the second and occasionally dealing with tech issues while live to air. This episode Dylan Alcott and Angus O’Loughlin ask about her new role as the ABC’s National Disability Affairs Reporter and they test out her news-reading technique themselves, which goes exactly how you think it would... 

    Nas will make you think twice about how you can be a “Newsreader

    #29 - Em Carey

    Our most requested guest to date! This episode Dylan Alcott and Angus O’Loughlin talk to Em Carey aka ’The Girl That Fell From The Sky’ here’s a tiny piece of her story with disability:"Isn’t it crazy how life is one thing and then in a single moment it becomes something entirely different. That’s how it happened for me anyway. Here I was, Emma, the girl who loves to run and travel the world and whose biggest worry is what I was having for dinner that night, and then in an instant… everything is changed. A freak skydiving accident is what did it for me. I was falling to what I presumed would be my death but instead I landed to the realisation that I was completely paralysed from the waist down."How can she have the same diagnosis as Dylan but live two completely different physical lives? It’s all explained in this episode of ListenABLE
