Break out your party hats and do a jig because The first episode of Blind Luminations is finally here! Hoping to shed a little light on blindness, Marc (the blind guy) and his sighted wife Jan talk about their experiences dealing with this disability.

Kicking things off with the winning topic of a social media poll, the two go in depth about how Marc became blind in the first place. Listen to some of the initial struggles he's gone through and continues to deal with some 18 years later. Of course there's plenty of fun along the way as well: You can't beat stories about Dr. Evil as a male nurse and a flatulent hospital roommate!
