The Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU 88.5FM in Washington DC is interviewing the outgoing and incoming presidents of Gallaudet University (previously) today. Gallaudet is a liberal arts college and graduate school for the deaf. Deaf and hearing-impaired persons will be able to fully participate in the conversation and 'listen' to the radio show live as the station is providing real-time captioning on-line and via HD-radio.

Also, Speche Communications is providing the real-time transcript via a javascript plugin (on the first link). Here is the non java transcript (requires refreshing).

I used to work at WAMU and met Kojo a couple times. He's a really cool guy, and something about his voice (and indeed entire presence) is incredibly soothing. His show is probably one of the best forums I've seen around here for local issues, and it's pretty awesome to see a post about him on mefi.

Gallaudet is actually the only all-deaf liberal arts college in the world. I've taken night classes there and I enjoyed reading the transcript of the show, which I was not able to catch live. Kojo is awesome, I'm so glad Tech Tuesdays are podcasts now.
