Rusty Shaw on Korean Sign Language
My guest this week is Rusty Shaw. After completing a tour in the Iraq war and then graduating from college, the American spent time in China and Korea studying Asian languages and cultures. In May 2012, after enrolling at the Yonsei University Graduate School of Business, Rusty began to learn Korean Sign Language and about Korean Deaf culture. During our conversation, we talk about Korean Deaf culture, if deafness is a disability, and how radio can be relevant to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
