Summary: Joey explains the premise of the 5 part interview with Dr. Paddy Ladd while he was in town early 2008. Then, he asks the first question about Dr. Ladd’s background. Dr. Ladd generous gives a brief explanation.

PS. Dr. Ladd is from the United Kingdom and uses British Sign Language. He has a working fluency of American Sign Language and it’s amazing that he’s capable of using ASL to communicate to us ASL users in this interview series! We appreciate it a lot.
