In our next podcast, we have a two-part episode focusing on a topic we’ve never talked about before, Parkinson’s disease.
To help us explore the experience of people living with Parkinson’s, we have Shake it Up Foundation CEO Clyde Campbell, and in the second half of the show, immersive storyteller and podcast friend Wesley Della Volla.
Clyde shares how his diagnosis propelled him into Parkinson’s research and how the Shake it Up Foundation is partnering Australian researchers with the Michael J. Fox Foundation in the US to help slow down, stop and heal Parkinson’s disease.
Wesley is Associate Lecturer at Georgetown University and founder of Meridian TreeHouse in Washington. Wesley has a long career in the immersive storytelling space with National Geographic, especially through our favorite medium, Virtual Reality.
As you’ll hear in the interview, his focus shifted after his diagnosis of early-stage Parkinson’s disease, and he is passionate about creating transformative virtual experiences for people with neurodiversity and physical limitations.
