Informative

Incredible podcast.

Jesse Lahey ,

Well worth a listen!

If you like this show, you will LOVE the same host's longer podcast, the Assistive Technology Update. I never would have thought that such a specialized topic could be presented in such an enjoyable, interesting way. Wade presents a TON of information but keeps it fun. Listening to this show makes you feel totally up-to-date. Plus, he does a great job involving his large, engaged audience.
