Jon Gibbins interviewed for A11y Rules podcast

The A11y Rules podcast presents a series of conversations between people involved in web accessibility and the host, Nic Steenhout. (A11y is a shorthand way of writing the word “accessibility”.)

I’ve known Nic for a long time, so it was great to chat with him about my journey to a career in accessibility, from growing up in a guest house in Devon, through a degree in Electronic Engineering, music technology, working with Drake Music, starting my own web development business, moderating Accessify Forum and learning from Steve Faulkner, Patrick Lauke, Gez Lemon, Tommy Olsson et al, to being on the team at Dig Inclusion.

I hope you enjoy listening.
