Closing out Season 6 is a very special episode with Sinéad Burke, host of "As Me, with Sinéad." At The Webbys, we spend a lot of time looking at the Internet, and determining what we want it to be. Sinéad is someone actively doing the work to create the Internet we want. On her show, she interviews notable guests about what it’s like to be them, how they navigate life in their bodies, and how this can help everyone better understand what its like out there for other people. She and host David-Michel Davies discuss what kickstarted her passion for accessibility advocacy, her famous TED Talk "Why Design Should Include Everyone," and more.

Now in their 24th year, the Webbys are currently accepting submissions for what’s been called the Oscars of the internet. Joining the podcast today is David-Michel Davies, the CEO of the Webbys, presented annually by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. We discuss the trends he’s been watching in the online space and what it even means to be a website in 2020.
