audio Episode 28: Kesha, rent-a-minority, PartPic, and Access Now

Post a review on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/adas-sisters-podcast/id1031918331

Chris Rock’s monologue for the 80th Academy Awards was all about the #WhiteOscars hashtag, and we loved it. And one solution Hollywood might want to look into is the Rent-a-Minority website, made for employers who “are racist, but don’t want to look racist.”

Ok, it’s a satirical website, but we think it makes an interesting statement.

Speaking of interesting statements, Toronto’s own Maayan Ziv has created an app that crowdsources accessible spots in different cities — it’s called ACCESS NOW.

And another app that has our attention is the PartPic which is like Shazam for parts you might need. Just take a picture and it identifies the part and helps you find a replacement.

The background music is ‘Funky Element’ from BenSound.com and is used with attribution.
