Short, sweet, and super fascinating

I recently came across this podcast and fell in love with in. I just wish there were more episodes. Keep up the good work, you do not know how helpful this podcast can be for people with special needs especially when on the hunt for a new product or service!

Informative

Incredible podcast.

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.
