The Online DJ Podcast – Understanding Epilepsy

I know personally I have been DJing at a party when I get approached by my client who asks “Can you turn your lights off as one of my guests has epilepsy?” to which I of course agree to do. But I have never really understood the subject that well.

What lights can actually affect epileptic people?

How can DJs help tailor events to make them more suitable for epileptic people?

What can we do to help if someone has a seizure at an event?

In this episode of The Online DJ Podcast, our guest is Chantal Spittles from Epilepsy Action, Who today will be talking to us all about epilepsy in particularly how we as DJs can build an awareness around it.
