“Who’s driving”, the current blindness narrative in Canada, a Triple Vision Podcast on AMI Audio

Triple Vision Podcast on AMI Audio

On Triple Vision, hosts David Best and Hanna Leavitt bring you the history of Canadians who are blind, deafblind, and partially sighted, one story at a time, illuminating the challenges of the past, present, and future.

Episode Summary

In this sixth episode of Triple Vision, we do something different. We invite six members of the community to talk about how they see the current blindness narrative in Canada.

What is wrong with the current narrative, and what should it be?

Who is controlling the current Canadian blindness story?

What should the future narrative sound like?

“The sad part is, we all look at the news as a news and information source, and it isn’t. It’s a drama. It’s a dramatic work and belongs in the arts. A lot of people go there for their information. Unfortunately if it bleeds, it leads. And when it comes to blindness, we don’t bleed so much, but my goodness the narrative is pity filled.”

Join us for this fascinating journey, exploring the dangers of the single narrative of the blindness story in Canada.
