First there were episodes and then we introduced the podisode. Now we're proud to present our very first... Janisode!

 

That's right, Lumineers! Jan is ditching the dead weight and striking out on her own. Join the Guiding Goddess as she explores The pods for applause and shares her thoughts on the podcasts she's recently listened to. While it isn't a full episode, it definitely packs a punch! (Would you expect anything less from one half of The Blindnamic Duo?)

 

From gypsy funerals to Canadian true crime, listen to this first (of many) bonus Janisodes! Stay tuned for our next podisode as well. The Blindnamic Duo will discuss what it's like for Marc to be a blind journalist soon!

After taking a week off, The Blindnamic Duo are back... and this time it's clinical!

 

Although Thanksgiving isn't until Monday, hear about how Marc was recently carved up... but in a fun way! From minor surgery to various tests, he and his sighted wife Jan explore what it's like to be blind or a caregiver when dealing with various medical situations.

 

How did Jan bond with Marc's specialist? What interests her about when he gets bloodwork done? What sound did the blind guy make during his barium swallow test and what made both of them feel like they peed themselves? (It's really not as gross as you think.)

 

Getting healthy can be a scary thing but we make it fun! Don't be a dingleberry: Subscribe and download our latest podisode for the answers to all of this and more!

(Episode Art: A stick figure of Jan is on the left side of the image and asks,What happened to your leg?" A stick figure of Marc stands with a crooked leg on the right and replies, "I tried to kick my computer." The words "Blind Rage Is Real" are written in big letters above the scene. The sketch was drawn by Marc, who is completely blind.)

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.)
