Episode 20

I hope this title will get you to listen to this episode.  For the big 20, I am getting on my soapbox a bit to discuss the American with Disabilities Act and how these laws and regulations should be guidelines for opportunities and not a burden for your priorities. I will go over four important number/equations for your egress planning and how to incorporate them into your exhibition design.  I will also discuss why it is important for us to focus on doing more than the minimum because we are all headed to being challenged in our mobility one day.  As the temporarily-abled, we should see it as our duty to include those people that feel limited in so many aspects of their life.
