— a reason podcasts are not captioned

— a great winemaker

Yossi Samuels is an expert winemaker,
that works with a winery. He has produced
a wine, named Yossi for the Herodion Winery.

— deaf truck drivers, no; deaf pilot, yes

deaf truck drivers, yet Chuck Patterson,
who was deaf, was a pilot for UPS in
Louisville, KY! He just departed us. A cruel
UPS irony? Yes!
