Mapping With Clicks [7.30.2013]

Brian Bushway became legally blind when he was 14 and learned to use a soft clicking sound to orient himself. He now teaches the technique, echolocation, to other blind people. Also in this show: Photographer George Steinmetz talks about his glider, and how he uses it to soar above deserts and vast wild spaces to capture the view from above.
