Great Podcast Mixing Mainstream Tech w/Accessibility

I love that Shelly has created a great podcast about tech but with accessibility for all alongside. I just finished listening to the episode (#2) about audio description and learned a lot. Netflix deserves kudos for making all their new content with audio description built in—wish that all companies would do this (Hulu, pay attention!).
