Episode 76: Robin Christopherson
“Double Tap Canada gets a touch of class this week as the team are joined by Robin Christopherson MBE. Robin is the Head of Digital Inclusion at AbilityNet, and worked on one of the new shows for Apples upcoming video streaming service Apple TV+.
The show is called See and is a post-apocalyptic tale of a future world where all of humanity is blind. Robin was a consultant on the show, making sure blindness was represented in a true to life way, steering clear of various cliches and stereotypes that can be common when it comes to being blind. With some backlash regarding the show from the VI community, can this show walk the fine line between entertaining and possibly offensive?
Robin stays with Double Tap Canada as the team discuss this weeks tech news. Does the fact that Apple has cancelled the Air Power wireless charging mat mean much or is it nothing to worry about. Are the new Apple Airpods 2 worth the money and do they add anything new over the Airpods 1? And can KNFB Reader still justify it’s high price tag after the release of a new OCR app called Voice Dream Scanner?
