  1. Hello, Belo,

    I am the manager of the Minnesota Radio Talking Book Network. We are part of Minnesota’s State Services for the Blind, and as such, we are part of a larger network that assists blind people in finding jobs.

    Our director recently saw a blog that you published in 2013 called Hiring Blind: The Misconceptions Facing America’s Visually Impaired Workforce. She asked me if I could make it into a podcast for our customers who are looking for work.

    Physically, I can do that. But ethically, I want to ask your permission. You may have already turned it into a podcast. If you have, I would love to have the link. If you have not and would welcome us to do that, I will, of course, give you full attribution for the content and will refer people to your webpage.

    Thank you for your work,
    Stuart Holland, Manager
    Minnesota Radio Talking Book Network
