This week The Blindnamic Duo is going meta and talking podcasts!

 

Where did Marc and Jan hear about the medium, what shows have they previously hosted before abandoning them and why? Also, listen to the blind guy talk about how he edits this podcast without several useful (but inaccessible) apps at his disposal. Just ignore the parts where Jan makes it sound as if words like "podisode" or phrases such as "bloat the head" are a good idea. (Did we mention that Marc not only edits the podcast but writes its show notes as well?)

 

All of this plus discussions about scripting vs. winging it, our roles in putting together each episode, how podcasts replace magazines for the blind in the bathroom and more await! Listen, subscribe and be sure to come back next time when we talk about how Marc learnt to be blind. It'll be a great way to celebrate our turn as Podbean's podcast of the week!

(Episode Art: On the left of the image, a stick figure of Jan says "I love Podisodes!" with a heart symbol replacing the word "love." On the right side, a stick figure of Marc angrily yells, "Stop it!" The hashtag "#PodLife" is written in big letters above the scene. The sketch was drawn by Marc, who is completely blind.)

This week the Blindnamic Duo are getting down to business and talking accessibility on the internet!

 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but why does it sometimes need more than 100 characters? Marc gets fired up about captchas, Jan relates the internet to architecture and the two delve into the staggering statistic that 70% of websites are inaccessible to the blind.

 

All of this, plus find out what it feels like when robots cry. (Here's a hint: They see sparks!) Listen and subscribe to get all future episodes as soon as they are released. Next week is all about books, so prepare to find out how Marc and Jan get their nerd on!

The words "Accessibility Is Important" are written above the scene. The sketch was drawn by Marc, who is completely blind.)

While we might not be as funny, Blind Luminations his the Seinfeld of podcasts this week!

 

As Marc and Jan scramble to get ready for their vacation, the two had to make some hard choices. The result? A pre-camping trip podcast about nothing! Without a topic of the week, the blindnamic duo covers any random subject their little hearts desire. Accessible parking follow-up? Check! Stealing a blind man's cane? Check! People thinking Marc and Jan are siblings? Check! Marketing ideas to monetize this thing? Double check!

 

As you can tell, we've still jam packed as much content into this shorter episode as humanly possible.  (Don't worry, we'll be back to our usual format next week with The Episode About Travelling Blind!)

(Episode art: A stick figure of Marc angrily holds his cane as flames rise up around him. As he says "Grrrrrrr...," a stick figure of Jan stands next to him and responds, "Oh no, you didn't listen to our podcast!" The words "Blind Fury" are written above the two. This sketch was drawn by Marc, who is completely blind.)
