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 29

This week on Talking in the Dark, Evie chats with the utterly remarkable and completely wonderful Stephen Fry. In this beautifully enlightening and far-reaching conversation Evie talks with Stephen about many subjects including his childhood growing up in Norfolk, the fun he had narrating the Harry Potter books, and the many brilliant characters he has play on TV, film, and stage.

Stephen also discusses issues around mental health, and the great importance of never giving up on one’s own ability.

This was an incredible opportunity and we thank Stephen and his team for their time, and support.
