Description

Sight Attendant is an exploration of the difference between how blind and sighted people consume movies and television. While some TV shows and films have audio description for the blind, several do not. Join us as we do this by delving into the wonderful and revered catalogue of Nicolas Cage films.

Another season coming to an end here with this wrap up episode. We cover some of the brief moments in your favorite shows that featured blindness. We also run through this season and look back at how these shows all could have been so much worse. Big Announcement Time! Next season we will be covering Stephen King and all things related to his work. Also, of course, #blindstuff. In the meantime catch our intermission Harry Potter episodes and a bonus HBO episode coming soon.As always, sh...
We finally did it! Scent of a Woman Time! After many requests it's here. Content warning as this film and our episode deal with self harm and suicide. Who the hell knew that Pacino won an Oscar for this? Al Pacino has always looked 100 years old. It's packed full of pretty good confidence advocacy and weird old man aggression. We probably missed some of the good bits, make sure to email and tell us about them.As always, share us with a friend so we can spread more awareness.buymeacoffee.com/s...
Spicy episode for you all this week as we watched an episode of Call the Midwife. It was all about that thing where folks assume the abilities of people with disabilities. I mean what the hell, her own sister tried to get her baby taken away cause she was blind. Gross. Also we are in the middle of the audio description awareness challenge. Use the hashtag #TADAchallange, go watch something with audio description and use that tag! Also challenge others that haven't used audio description!ADNA ...
It's Curb time again this week except this time with added artificial blind flavor. We watched a few episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm that featured a blind character. As with most things and us our feelings were mixed.... Some really funny stuff mixed with poor assumptions about what blind folks are capable of. Also don't forget about our interview on the audio description narrators of America podcast! Get in touch with your inner Larry this week and awkwardly tell someone about our podcast.L...
Well it finally happened, we did a whole ass episode on HBO max. Why you ask? Well it's because they got their dicks sued off and were literally forced to give a shit about blind folks. They did a ton of really great things but also completely missed the mark on a few. We had a ton of fun recording this episode but Jordan is being a typical whiny blind guy for a good portion. Go watch some audio described content after you listen to our interview on the Audio Description Narrators of America ...
We are all over the place this week! It's a party because the ladies over at HBO actually pulled through with the audio description being added to their service. This excitement carried through the episode, not that it takes much for Jordan to yell into the microphone. We also watched and talked about a movie, Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in Tights. It has a ye olde blinde person in it and a ton of other inappropriate stuff. Predictably we talk about IKEA but it's actually accessibility relate...
Well this episode got a bit more serious than either of us expected, even though the movie was really great. Some great actors from Parks an and Recreation fame are in our movie this week called My Blind Brother. We explore several of the common blind struggles and tropes in this one. Asking for help is difficult, not knowing the motives of folks around you, dealing with people you love saying things that are just weird, all covered in this one. Also HBO better get its shit together or we wil...

Episode #33: The Puppy One

Alright y'all it's a bit of an anniversary episode this week as guide dog Frisco came into Jordan's life three years ago this month. For this episode, we watched the film Pick of the Litter. The movie covers a litter of pups moving through their process of becoming guide dogs at Guide Dogs for the Blind. We had a ton of fun watching and recording this episode. As usual lately we also mention the looming deadline for HBO Max to add audio description to its service. Guess we will see what happe...

Episode #32: Imagine

A bit of a weird one this week with a film that most of you probably can't watch. If we find a way for y'all to see it we will definitely share it. Join us at a blind school where we learn a little about sighted folks trying to tell blind folks how to live. You might guess this inspired some yelling from Jordan. We also touch on a guest spot we will be doing soon. And remind everyone to do that sharing thing.Y'all know the drill, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram @sightattendantReme...
I'll bet y'all forgot there was a blind kid in Dumb and Dumber. Well, leave it to us to remind you. While we were both quite familiar with this national treasure already, it was still a super fun episode. Which of us is more Harry and more Lloyd? Also could they have put even one attractive person in this movie? Jordan is not a fan of "90s" hot girls and Ashley is actually a golden retriever. Tune into this shorty but a goody.Credit given to this video for the interview clip https://youtu.be/...
It's ya bois, back at it week after week. We have a bit of a shorty for you this week BUT we have a guest in the studio for the first time ever. One of our avid listeners chats with us about In The Dark and her experience dating a blind guy in her younger days. We discuss several talents that blind folks seem to share and maybe some not so good traits they also have. Ashley and Raven did have to mic share, so be kind, we hope the audio quality is still as fire as it has ever been.Feel free to...
Well this has been a long time coming, it's time for In The Dark. Stop reading this and go watch the first episode of this show. We've heard so much about it and were absolutely surprised by it. Being rude as a blind person is cool again. We are finally moved in to our new home and trying to minimize the chaos, we hope to be in better social media contact soon! Enjoy!
What up, it's ya Bois, the hot blind guy and the funny gal. We back as absolute super heroes. We are both using Jordan's improved hearing and sense of smell to go off on a 40 minute tangent at the beginning of this episode. Strip clubs! Hot insurrectionists! Eventually they talk about Daredevil, the show. The kids are voracious readers, check their Good Reads here: Ashley:https://www.goodreads.com/friend/i?invite_token=NjZhYjc4NzYtMGI2Zi00YzY3LTg0ODAtNDcwM2I2YWQ4M2FjJordan:https://www.go...
Welcome back y'all. RIP Jordan, Ashley killed him for being an asshole. Lucky for you he's got multiple lives and here be his redemption arc. This is your semi regular update on audio description. We also introduce our new regular segment where Jordan asks Ashley what things and people look like. Let's be honest though it's just mostly Jordan asking if people and buildings are hot. We talk about feeling left out of pop culture stuff that isn't described and this awesome app called spect...
Talk about robbing someone blind. It's Don't Breathe this week. There is a TW: for r*pe which we discuss VERY briefly. Audio description is back through the Spectrum access app which we discuss briefly. Also some pretty killer dog discussion in this one. Remember to share us! We are a small team and love providing this content. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @sightattendant
See! Is the name of this Apple TV show we watched. Like holy heck it's a world full of blind folks. We also talk about using polite words vs angry words when advocating for yourself and Others. Banana pancakes in this week's recipe corner which isn't a thing. But maybe it should be? As always share with a friend and help build our wonderful family! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/sightattendant to show us some love and support.
BAM! Season two coming at you. We recorded this episode in international waters so we can't be prosecuted. Also it's Step Brothers in case you didn't catch the references. This episode is mostly about why the hell there is the weird blind guy joke. Or is it a joke? We really aren't sure. Also covered is the importance of caring for vintage Playboys. As always share with a friend and help build our wonderful family! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/sightattendant to show us some love a...
It's time to bring the era of Cage to a close. In this part two of Con Air we find out what happens to a plane full of convicts. We also find out what happens in a world full of people that say weird things to Jordan. There's some small talk including a review of some murder documentaries we've watched and some we are looking forward to. Don't forget about our upcoming live stream coming to you on New Year's Eve.Links:HBO Max:Heaven's Gate trailer HBO Maxhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...
"Con" means convict this week with our long haired beauty in Con Air. Jordan was very surprised by the number of huge stars in this one. He fully endorses this one as "star studded". It may or may not be Ashley's favorite Nic Cage ever, don't judge her. We also found some audio description for once, outside of the service we streamed it on. This episode is part one of our season one finale. Blind stuff for this week includes what blind folks do in the dark and things they miss in movies. ...
Jordan and Ashley are confident men this week with another cage classic flick, Matchstick Men. They learn to scam members of the public and tell you how you can do this too. An episode wouldn't be complete without a side of Nic freaking out in a film. We are also critical of the writing and its adherence to the DSM -5. Blind content this week includes how people attempting to be helpful to people with disabilities aren't typically prepared to be actually helpful. Big announcement with our upc...
