Kambri Crews discusses her unconventional childhood with deaf parents in rural Texas. Her memoir, Burn Down the Ground, recounts how, as a child, she had wished she'd been born deaf so that she could also be part of the tight-knit Deaf community that embraced her parents, but she witnessed how the isolation at accompanied her father's deafness unlocked a fierce temper.

Not being deaf myself or a CODA I wasn’t so interested in this interview. However, I found it fascinating. Kambri Crews is very affable. I'd read her book.
