Welcome to Aftersight - a podcast about print disability and the life of possibilities that follows. This podcast is produced by the Audio Information Network of Colorado. Find us at AINColorado.org. Our host, Penn Street, began her journey into vision loss at the age of nine, and each week she is joined by a member of the community who can talk about how print disability has impacted them - or how THEY have impacted the community. These conversations can be informative, or they can be stories of the denial, depression, and grief that come with processing a life change - but together we grow and find solidarity. On Aftersight, we learn and we share experiences. We hear how lives have changed, lives have stayed the same, and we’re always reminded that there is life AFTER sight.
