Interview Podcast Highlight: ‘Blindness for Beginners’ – A conversation with author Maribel Steel.

28 January 2020

In this podcast interview which was originally featured on our Behind the Scenes program on January 27, presenter Chris Thompson meets the author of a unique and remarkable book with the provocative title – Blindness for Beginners. Maribel Steel knows firsthand how challenging the experience of losing sight can be, but rather than be overwhelmed by it, she’s channelled her experience into a book that’s part memoir, part ‘how to’ and part inspiration. Maribel is the first guest on the show for 2020.

About Behind the Scenes.

The Melbourne Arts Community is as diverse as its population. From traditional fine music concerts and mainstream drama to contemporary music and challenging independent theatre groups, and much in between; it seems Melbourne has it in spades. So what goes into making up these various arts groups? That’s where ‘Behind the Scenes’ comes in. Each week the program looks at how people organize and carry out these arts projects. Many stories, both fascinating and amusing are waiting to be told. Audiences across Victoria, Albury and Perth can tune in Mondays at 9pm, repeated Saturdays 6:30pm, if listening from Adelaide catch the program at 8:30pm Saturdays.
