Like it or not, communicating with smart devices has become a huge part of our lives.  For people with disabilities, this communication can be an essential part of making it through the day.  However these devices have a hard time understanding speech that is outside what they've heard before. Google has launched an effort called Project Euphonia to retrain our devices to understand people who have speech impairments.  Bob MacDonald is one of the leaders of the project and he joins The Dudes to talk about the project and how we can all help out.

Two Disabled Dudes

Curiosity about someone's disability often comes from a good place but depending on how it is delivered, it can create awkward or even offensive situations.  This week the dudes struggle with how to react in these awkward situations.  It's good for someone to ask questions but there is a line somewhere.  Listen for real life stories and honest conversation.

113 - How do we Define Each Other? show art 113 - How do we Define Each Other?

Two Disabled Dudes

In the opening episode of Season 4, Sean and Kyle admit to being a little lazy lately and then commit to getting back on the wagon.  That's the power of accountability!  And it's the power of their commitment to their listeners - one insightful episode per week for the next 4 months! The meat of the episode is all about how we tend to define ourselves and each other by the immediate circumstances.  The Dudes postulate that perhaps we should be defined by the entirety of what we do rather than one or two things.   Let them know what YOU think: instagram.com/2ddpodast...
