This podcast is a culmination of Dani's Albinism Up Close (www.albinismupclose.com) and Josh's Nine to Freedom (www.ninetofreedom.com). Born from a 10 year friendship, Dani and Josh discuss freedom and independence as persons with albinism and visual impairment, where on the spectrum they are, their life experiences, and what mental, spiritual, and financial freedom means to them. After all, no two people have the same perspectives. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but most of all, they will make you think about your own individual freedom.

    Episode 10 - Social Media: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Mature and Adult themes. Listener discretion is advised. 

    Dani and Josh talk Social Media. Got a Facebook or an Insta? Maybe TikTok? Do you remember MySpace, Hi5, Bebo, or some other Internet social platform? Or maybe you were a member of a BBS or a web forum? Plus, the dark side of social media: the trolls, keyboard thugs, and the comparisons that we do against other people just from what we see on a webpage!
