Episode #44: An Interview with Steve the Blind Gamer

When you swing by Tee’s stream on Tuesday nights, you may notice there’s some serious shenanigans afoot. You would be more correct on that as we are hosting as special series called The Blind Leading the Blind featuring Steve Saylor. As Tee likes to say “Steve and I are putting the BLIND into Blind Playthrough.”

If you are curious as to where we are going with this, yes, Steve Saylor is legally blind…

…and he plays video games.

Strap in and find out how Steve is pulling off this Christmas Miracle as we welcome this knucklehead to the show. What started off as a wild idea has now evolved into a highly-anticipated event on Tee’s and Steve’s streams. Find out more in this episode from your Fireteam.
