Shelly knows technology very well and also happens to be visually impaired. This perspective has led Shelly to create a twist on the standard panel tech show that has become very popular in podcasting. Each episode, Shelly is joined by two guests who share their perspectives on current and upcoming tech, including how it delivers in regard to accessibility.
I’ve listened to tech shows as long as I’ve known about podcasts, and Shelly’s show is one of the freshest takes I’ve heard in the last few years. The show just moved from independent to become part of the network at Relay.fm so this is the perfect time to jump in. I am on a continuing mission to broaden the perspectives I consider as part of my view of the world and shows like Parallel are a great help along that journey.
