14. The Episode About Podcasts

The image depicts a stick figure of Jan saying "I love Podisodes!" with a heart symbol replacing the word "love." On the right, a stick figure of Marc angrily yells, "Stop it!" The hashtag "#PodLife" is written in big letters above the scene.
Drawn by Marc Rocheleau, 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!
