#86: An Immigrant in the Country of the Blind

September 13th, 2023 · 54 minutes

Andrew Leland's memoir "The Country of the Blind" tells a story about his ongoing journey into vision loss.

He talked with me about the book, about the technology he uses, and some of his encounters with people made uncomfortable by low-vision.
