15. The Episode About Learning To Be Blind

An image depicts Yoda saying, "You must unlearn what you have learned." On the right side, a stick figure of Marc holds his white cane in the air like a lightsaber as it glows. "Yo da man, Yoda!" is written in big letters above the scene.
Drawn by Marc Rocheleau, who is completely blind.

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, The Blind Avenger was literally learning to navigate his surroundings after losing his vision 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. (Yes folks, it is indeed the darkest timeline.)

 

Find out what the former did to adapt, what he thinks of friends who left him behind and how long it took to truly be 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 for free and listen today!
