It used to be that the latter part of the year meant a slower news cycle for a little program like ours. That trend seemed to disappear in 2016 and it looks like it has no sign of stopping as this week's news section makes up the bulk of this episode's runtime. A great interview with Sam Latif of Procter & Gamble, a listener-submitted tip and the stylish "Last Word" help round out a show where all three of us were under the weather to some extent.
In The News:
Interview: Sam Latif And Herbal Essence Products Tactile Marking
Exhibit Halls are places of wonder and surprises. Take J.J and his recent jaunt to the NFB Colorado State Convention for an example. There he met Sam Latif, Inclusive Design Consultant at Procter and Gamble, who is one of the key designers of the new tactile markings initiative at P&G. Hear Sam describe the process of how these new markings came to market and her reaction to their arrival on store shelves.
