Play • 29 min
Bonnie Barlow is a professional audio describer. That is, Bonnie narrates what is going on during movies, plays, ballets, television shows, and even rodeos for people who can’t see the action. Bonnie talks about how she started her journey as a professional audio describer almost 30 years ago and what makes for a vibrant audio description.

Audio description is a fascinating topic that is extremely relevant in 2021. So many of us spend our day with a virtual “companion” in the room in the form of a podcast or youtube, and audio-described content can play much the same role. There are also varieties of audio description for people on the Autism Spectrum to help with comprehension.

Join Penn and Bonnie as they dive into the world of audio description!
