    What We Wouldn't Have Known Before Experiencing Sight Loss - Episode #92

Hands Down Best Podcast on Visual Impairment

As a writer and public speaker who is married to a man with similar skills as well as Ushers Syndrome, I was serioously dissappointed with how BORING so many of the informational resources out there are for VIPs and their supporters! I wanted to learn how to best support my partner and get tips on VIP as parents, but I couldn't sit through anything, and was afraid we might have to do our own podcast to fill the void...then the Daniels saved the day. Smart, simple, practical, honest, entertaining, hopeful, and equally valuable for both supporters to see the perspective of their VIP, and most importantly? Vice verse.If you ever need a couple of hilarious guests, let us know!

Thanks for filling the void.
