07. The Episode About Blind Navigation

An image depicts a stick figure of Jan driving a shopping cart towards a stick figure of Marc as she yells "REVENGE!" He responds by saying, "Jan...?" while not realizing what's going on. "Blind Shopping 2 (The Reckoning)" is written in big letters above the scene..

Drawn by Marc Rocheleau, who is completely blind.From apps on your phone to landmarks on the ground, there are many ways to navigate using objects and sounds!

 

After realizing they didn’t cover everything the day after their last episode (at 3 in the morning no less,) Marc and Jan are back with some more navigating fun! The Blindnamic Duo explores  how Marc actually navigates in a grocery store (no, he doesn’t just drive a cart by himself,) what he  would do without a guide, the proper technique to using a cane, what objects cause him the most pain when he runs into them and which mistakes are (or aren’t) funny.

 

If that wasn’t enough, we share how Marc provides directions to drivers despite being blind, his ability to sense if someone’s travelled too far and why his brain is superior to everyone else’s… well except for the whole being blind thing. Yeah, that’s a pretty big one.
