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.

This week on Talking in the Dark, Evie speaks with Nathan Geering – fire performer, martial artist, stunt performer, and accessibility innovator.

In this lovely conversation Evie learns all about Nathan’s life and work, including: where he gets his ideas for films from, how he became interested in the exciting activities he is now famous for, and the ‘Rational Method’ Nathan’s groundbreaking accessibility program which harnesses the creativity of break dancing and hip-hop to make the world more accessible for people with visual impairments.

A huge thank you to Nathan for his time and energy, it was an honour to talk with him.
