The Blind Argument is a debate-style podcast that discusses ‘hot’ topics that surround people living with disability, more specifically vision impairment and blindness.
Clinical Psychologist Davinia Lefroy and Youth Support Officer Ryan Honschooten debate these issues through their past and lived experience, and in doing so offer insights, education and understanding for people living with or without disability. One thing they both agree on is that there’s more than one ‘right’ way of doing things.
