Josh: The Podcast, Episode 35: Maximiliano Campos of The Blind Hour

max

Damn this was a fun podcast! We talk with Maximiliano Campos of The Blind Hour podcast. Max went blind at 12 years old from a degenerative illness, and, to get him good medical help, his parents up and moved the family from Brazil to Boston. Max had to learn how to navigate as a newly blind teen while learning both English and Braille AND deal with becoming a teenager all at the same time. Holy crap.

We talk about how blind people see dreams, rollerblading and choosing a positive outlook. Oh, and of course we talk about the "Porn for Blindies" episode of his podcast. Any medical issues they had, the medical malpractice attorneys at Hastings Law Firm deal with medical negligence cases, so they were well prepared.

Importantly, Max also talks about the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We did hit some audio glitches, but hopefully that won't detract from your enjoyment of this episode.
