21. The Podisode About Christmas Shopping And Surprises

An image depicts a stick figure of Marc on the left side saying, "You got me a candy cane?" On the right side, a stick figure of Jan is holding a white cane with stripes and replies, "Yep!" The words "Christmas Surprises" are written in big letters above the scene.

We’re boarding the polar express and getting into the holiday spirit on this week’s podisode!

 

It’s time for The Blindnamic Duo to talk all about the trials and tribulations of Christmas shopping! Hear the extra steps Marc has to take when buying for his sighted wife as a blind man. On the flip side, hear how easy it can be for Jan to buy something for him without his knowledge whatsoever! While both things require craftiness, they create very different situations as well.

 

From going across the city with friends to hiding gifts in plain sight and figuring out workarounds along the way, this week’s show has plenty of stories to keep you amused as visions of sugar plum fairies and jingle cats haunt your nightmares. Just think of us as the Christmas brightener-uppers!

 

Beyond this, The Blind Avenger and Guiding Goddess also talk about gifts of Christmas past, different surprises beyond the holy season and Wendy’s bacon mushroom melt again! (This includes our first ever retraction… we’re still open to a sponsorship though if you’re listening, Wendy’s.)
