Hi, I’m Steve, I’m blind and I’m starting a podcast.
For those of you who’ve been watching Blind Gamer from the beginning in 2015, or you just subscribed recently, you may think that this is a brand new idea for me.
Well hold onto your butts because I actually have been podcasting since….wait when was it?
October 24, 2005?
Yep, I started podcasting back when it was still a brand new thing and no one knew what it was!
That lasted maybe about a year on my own posting once a month, and then around 2007 I started another podcast called This Week in Geek which is still running by my former co-host Mike Dodd.
Then in 2012 I, along with a few of my friends, started a RPG, Dungeons and Dragons, tabletop game podcast called “Terrible Warriors”. So suffice it to say, I’ve been podcasting for now 13 years.
Yep, still old.
In all that time, the last time I had a solo podcast just by myself was well over 10 years ago.
Way to jump on the bandwagon that you jumped off of 10 years ago, and just now running up to catch up to it and jump back on it again. I helped build that bandwagon dangit!
So nothing says going back to your roots than dusting off the old recorder and see if I still have what it takes to compete with the big boys.
So what is this podcast called?
I’m calling it, ta-da-da-da! You already know what it is, you saw it in the title when you found this piece of content.
THE BLIND GAMER PODCAST!
What will I be doing in this podcast?
Well I’m super excited, because I’ll be talking about, surprise surprise, sewing. It’ll be all about my love for sewing, cross stitching, knitting, we’ll be making a quilt!
No, no I’ll be talking about video games! I’ll be talking about what I’m playing, what I’m enjoying, reviews of the game from an accessibility perspective. I’ll also be bringing up cool news stories within the world of video games and gaming accessibility.
But that’s not all, I love to have conversations so I’ll be chatting with some really cool people, such as game developers, accessibility advocates and just really cool friends of mine that are doing really cool and awesome things!
