The Blindnamic Duo are back and ready to rock the 2020 premiere of the podcast!

 

After a short hiatus, Marc and Jan have returned with an action packed podisode filled with stories from their holiday season: How does a blind man participate in axe throwing? What happened during an apartment-wide power outage along with the consequences? How did The Blind Avenger's audio descriptions help the Guiding Goddess' movie going experience? (It's a story of Marc taking the lead for once!)

 

We also talk stinky onions, birthday/holiday parties and getting doped up at the hospital on this pot pourri of of a podisode. It's like a Christmas gift in mid-January!

What fun is a relationship if there isn't a little bit of stabbing once in awhile?

 

While it may sound sadistic, The Blindnamic Duo is actually covering how Jan and Marc manage the latter's diabetes. Find out how The Blind Avenger checks his blood sugar, gives himself insulin and listen to an audio demonstration of both! It's the perfect solution for those who have always wanted to hear a blind man get stabbed and bleed while being too queasy to watch!

 

Beyond this immersive experience, find out why blind diabetics have great  relationships, lots of sweets and like noise. Marc and Jan are making up for lost time so strap in and get some audio sweetener! (Did you think we were going to promote sugar here?)

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!)

This week on Blind Luminations we're talking about how Marc learnt to be blind.

 

While most of his teenage friends were taking their first steps into adulthood, Marc was literally learning to navigate his surroundings after going blind at the age of 19. Join us as we go  into our way back machine and explore a time before Marc met Jan in college.

 

Find out what the blind guy did to adapt, what he thinks of friends who left him behind and how long it took for him to get truly comfortable with being blind. As a bonus, hear some methods for how the blind sort their clothes and what goes into picking the right white cane.

 

The Blindnamic Duo tackles all these stories, details and more (like freaking out friends with your old pair of eyeglasses) along with a major announcement that will change the very face of this podcast... forever! Don't be a dingleberry: Subscribe and listen today!
