And now, back to our regularly scheduled program: On this week’s show, Stuart sees the podcast in a new light, because he has just got his new eyes. Yes, you heard us right, he got new eyes! It’s been 25 years since Stuart got his last set of prosthetic eyes, so he was overdue to go to the eye shop and organise some new ones. He tells us all about it and Jan and Óran have some great ideas for what he can do with the old ones.

Jan and family have recovered from COVID again, but who is to blame? Was it Sjef?

Ever wanted to try an escape room? Well, our guest this week is Matt Ater from Vispero, and he is here to tell us all about the Vispero escape room. Do you have what it takes to land a plane in less than an hour or find your way out of a casino?

In TV Corner, we are talking about ‘Capture’ on the BBC, and ‘Surface’ and ‘Bad Sisters’ on Apple. Also have you seen the ‘Meet the characters’ video for RTÉ’s new drama ‘North Sea Connection’ yet? Check it out here:

Clodagh has emails at last from Gary Hough-like-cough, who has been in hospital with some speaker trouble (-huh?) and the ever-entertaining Patty from the US. God but we love our listeners! 💕

So, strip down to your prosthetics, give your false teeth to the dog, turn up your hearing aid volume to 11, and get ready for the most comprehensive discussion on extraneous nonsense in the world - Blind Guys Chat!
