Blind Comics Symposium

A short update with news of an event I’m cohosting this week! First, a couple of recent podcast interviews. Back in June, I spoke with Mike Hanson for his show the Well Read Investor and we had a good conversation about how I came to do this work and thoughts about comics in education. That’s…
