LightHouse High-Tech Navigation Gets National Radio Coverage

bryanbashinhockenberryinterview3_20015Last month Emmy and Peabody award winning journalist and author John Hockenberry interviewed LightHouse CEO Bryan Bashin for his radio show “The Takeaway”. The interview, which was first broadcast on NPR on March 24, highlights the LightHouse’s efforts to help advance blind travel options, including our talking transit maps. The segment begins with a fascinating interview with LightHouse student and blind backpacker Marc Sutton as he takes a journalist on a tour of the BART system using our BART maps.

Listen to the entire segment.
