This week on the Blind Luminations podcast, Marc and Jan are discussing some recent adventures!

 

The Blindnamic Duo attended a couple of public events last weekend and are ready to break down their experiences. First up is the Canadian premiere of independent film Last Call, directed by the area's own Gavin Michael Booth. Following this, we're all about getting our comic on by covering the Windsor Comicon. Hear about Marc and Jan's adventures, how he shot a stormtrooper in the head... repeatedly and  what should be considered for events like these. The two also cover stairs (quite thoroughly) and how perceptions of a parking garage can change depending on eyesight. (Is that Jason hiding behind a pillar over there?)

 

The podisode era begins with all of this and more, including a shout-out to the podcast's youngest fan! Don't be a dingleberry: Listen and subscribe wherever great podcasts are found.  Next week we'll be getting healthy and discussing Marc's experiences undergoing different medical tests and procedures. (The best was the time it felt like he wet his pants!)

(Episode Art: Stick figures of Marc and Jan appear on a comic book cover. On the top left of the comic, a rectangle contains the letters "BL" while #1 is written below in an area sectioned off within the shape. To the right of the rectangle, "The Blindnamic Duo" is written with each word taking up one line each. The words "The Podisode Era Begins!" are written below where Marc and Jan are standing. The sketch was drawn by Marc, who is completely blind, with an assist from Jan to make sure the comic book elements didn't overlap.)

In honour of children skipping merrily back to school, The Blindnamic Duo is all about books this week!

 

From narration to braille or productions with sound effects to text-to-speech, there are several ways for the blind to enjoy a good book. Marc and Jan explore their experiences with certain formats, services and explain the situations each one creates. What do both prefer and why?

 

How does Marc enjoy comic books and what happens when he has to explain them? How can his reading habits spoil a book for Jan? When do things become more challenging and why should Thanos read children's books? We also digress into talking about church and the size of Marc's head somehow.

 

Listen and subscribe today for all this and more! We also  introduce a brand new member of the team as they kick off phase one of the Blind Luminations Podematic Universe! (Be sure to listen to the end of this episode as well... unless you are still trying to avoid Avengers: End Game spoilers for some reason.) We'll be back next week to talk about podcasts.

(Episode Art: On the left of the image, Marc chants "Egghead likes her bookie wook!" On the right side, Jan throws a book at Marc with the word "Bitten" written on the cover. As it flies at him, she yells, "ReadTHIS, blind man!" The words "Book Smarts" are written above the scene. 

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