He responds by yelling "Ayeeeeeeeeeeeee!" Blind Terror is written in big letters above the scene. The sketch was drawn by Marc Rocheleau, who is completely blind. Jan Rocheleau made sure the ferris wheel carts were inside the wheel.)

In a tale of love and marriage, The Blindnamic Duo are sharing how they make things work on this week's podisode!

 

After a slight delay, Marc and Jan are back to discuss what it's like to be married while relying on social assistance. How does being on ODSP put a strain on those in a benefit unit? What financial hardships did it cause for the two? How do they work through these issues? What actually makes The Blind Avenger and Guiding Goddess luckier than other married couples?

 

It's only a fraction of what's covered in the 70 minute podisode so tune in for the rest!

The sketch was drawn by Marc Rocheleau, who is completely blind.)

The Blindnamic Duo are back and have plenty of ground to cover!

 

How is Marc preparing for a revolution and what is Jan doing to help paint a picture for him? We're  reviewing Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, talking Instagram photos and making a big announcement. Be sure to listen if you're on the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and looking for a way to share your story!

The sketch was drawn by Marc Rocheleau, who is completely blind.)

The Blindnamic Duo are back and row row rowing their boat gently down the stream!

 

Okay, so it isn't THAT kind of stream but Marc and Jan still have plenty to talk about. Find out what they thought of streaming a concert on their latest Quarendate, how the Guiding Goddess is readjusting to work and what almost left The Blind Avenger in a "crappy" situation.

 

We've got all this and a bag of potato chips in our latest podisode, so come join the fun!

The Blindnamic Duo are taking flight once again!

 

Leaving the serious content for their website, Marc and Jan decided to keep things light with this week's podisode. Going in with no particular topic, the two ended up having a lengthy discussion on the portrayal of diabetics in TV & film. Aside from that, hear about the Guiding Goddess trying to steal her husband's cane and why you shouldn't mess with The Blind Avenger!

You're not dreaming, The Blindnamic Duo are back with another dose of podcasting fun!

 

On this edition of the Blind Luminations podcast, Marc and Jan are having a slumber party! Get on your PJs, grab your pillows and freeze someone's underpants! (Okay, maybe don't do that last one...) The two are talking about blindness, sleep and dreams so don't nod off.

 

If that wasn't enough, the masked husband and wife team are also covering what they've been up to in the past couple of weeks. What are they watching? Where are they eating from? How are they keeping busy? There's only one way to find out!

The Blindnamic Duo is back and better than ever!

 

What have Marc and Jan been up to since the world got turned upside down in March? In their first podisode of the pandemic era and second season, the two focus on how their lives have been indirectly changed by Covid-19. From financial fears to impaired interactions, the Guiding Goddess and Blind Avenger have a lot to catch-up on!

 

The two also detail some changes that will alter the very fabric of this show. Oh yeah, Marc shares what he went through to promote the freshly minted second season too... or something.

They aren't the Jeffersons, but this week The Blindnamic Duo are moving on up!

 

Jumping back almost seven years, Marc and Jan discuss what it was like to move out three weeks before their wedding. What makes an apartment more enticing for someone who is blind? Which aspects does moving have in common with the disability? Why isn't it always a good idea to whistle while you work? How did The Guiding Goddess adjust to living with a blind man and what things do they both need to be aware of?

 

We cover these aspects of assimilation and more as The Blind Avenger also follows up on two burning questions from last week's podisode. What are you waiting for?

While moving day has been moved, The Blindnamic Duo are making this podcast fast an furious!

 

Due to complications surrounding her midnight shifts, Jan and Marc decided to push back the podisode about moving in together. As a result, the two discuss what they've been up to instead. From watching the most amazing film with a blind protagonist ever (spoiler: it's Blind Fury) to getting fat for religious reasons, there's still a lot to cover in this short podisode.

 

Along the way, the married couple also discuss counting severed body parts, whether or not Brooklyn's a suburb and how Marc chooses his sunglasses. (There may be a digression or two in there for good measure as well.)
