In his final stop around the world, his seventh country, Joel visits Los Angeles, California and catches up with SuperDeafy. The Deaf superhero takes him on a drive around town with John Maucere. Visiting her studio, Joel meets Amy Edwards, former Miss Deaf America, who is a lighter and compositor – a visual effects artist. After learning about how Hollywood magic is made, Joel visits Pink’s famous hot dogs to try out a chili dog and finds an autographed picture of Marlee Matlin there. Riding a mechanical bull, Joel stays on for a few minutes. Visiting Hollywood, No Barriers with Joel Barish takes you to the Kodak Theatre and finds Marlee Matlin’s star on the famous walk of stars. SuperDeafy makes a special appearance in this one!
ABOUT THE SHOW
An around-the-world trip took Joel to seven countries and many different successful Deaf individuals! In just two weeks, No Barriers with Joel Barish traveled via air to spend about two days in each city and truly showcases how empowered deaf people are all around the world. The trip was a positive outlook on the potential of deaf people to succeed in any aspect. No Barriers with Joel Barish would not have been able to complete the trip if it were not for tourism offices in each country. The offices provided Joel with local Deaf tour guides and accommodations to promote their countries, and No Barriers with Joel Barish is always open to new ideas and locations and partnerships with local tourism offices.
