Year 10 student Evie created her very own podcast, 'Talking in the Dark' to raise awareness about blindness, visual impairment and disability in general, in a happy and light-hearted way. Evie was born with a condition called bilateral anopthalmia, meaning her eyes didn’t develop, and as a result Evie now wears prosthetics. Through the podcast Evie aims to get rid of the stigma and stereotypes around disabilities whilst having fun conversations at the same time! During the interviews Evie will talk to people from all walks of life, including, at times, people with physical conditions like hers, getting to know all about them and the lives that they lead.

Episode 27

There will undoubtedly be times in life when we all feel vulnerable, scared, and in need of specialist care. However, this perhaps will never be more so than at the end of a life or when facing a life-threatening illness.

In this week’s episode of Talking in the Dark, Evie speaks with Aly and Kirree, two wonderful nurses from Rebecca House, about Hospice Isle of Man and the very special services this incredible charity provides.

During this conversation, which took place towards the end of 2023, Aly and Kirree also explain the origins of Hospice, as well as their very fond memories of meeting and working with Evie when she was very young.

A huge thank you to Aly and Kirree for coming onto the podcast to talk about such a special and significant charity.
