Blind Bargains Qast 201: The 2019 Blind Bargains Holiday Shopping Guide



Welcome to our 5th annual Blind Bargains Holiday Shopping Guide. This year, we've brought the deals straight to your audio feed. Sit back and relax as some of your favorite merchants, or perhaps some that are new to you, tell you about their latest products and services as well as some holiday deals. We'd like to sincerely thank all of the companies who were apart of this show. Below you'll find information about each company in the order they appear in the show.
We hope you have a safe and fulfilling Thanksgiving weekend and we'll be back with a new episode next week.

Blind Bargains Qast 200: Flash Boardon And The Mandalorian



Many things have changed since our first show Five years ago. This week is proof of that as Joe has a new profession He has embarked on; Patrick has a new ongoing feature for the BBQ and J.J. has some amazing news about a new Braille Display coming to A.T. Guys. Travel, animals and an acknowledgement of what came before rounds out this 200th, of the numbered shows, installment of the Blind Bargains Qast.

Blind Bargains Qast 199: The Knights Who Say... See!



J.J. is on the road this week and that means Joe is left to his own devices. Thank goodness Ricky Stopped by to talk about the initial four episodes of the new Apple TV Plus series See . Otherwise this show would have ben more of Joe chatting with himself about smart lighting, which he does anyway, and another game demo. David Ward Also appears in the line up to give us an overview about an Amazon Echo skill. Think of this one like a BBQ plate with some sides. And don t miss the EOL food suggestions as they might liven up your upcoming holiday parties!

Blind Bargains Qast 198: Unfun Pizza Shell



BBQ 194 Was the last time we rolled through a proper news section. We thought it was time for it to emerge from the shadows this week. Plus, to continue with the idea of a traditional format show, J.J. demos the Blind Shell Phone. A tip, several emails in Sound Off and fun audio treats are waiting for you at the end of the episode. It s a return to yesteryear for the team in 198.

Blind Bargains Qast 197: The Haunted Pitch Black Audio Hub Show



Ghouls and ghosts will soon be taking to the streets in search of pre-wrapped delicious treats. The BBQ Crew has faced zombies Before and lived to tell the tale. However, will that be the same result for joe this time around? Listen in on an audio demo from him and one from Jesse Anderson's Illegally Sighted channel. Retreat to the safety of J.J. and David Ward as they discuss some Digital Assistant features for Google and Amazon respectively. Most importantly, put on a pair of earbuds or headphones or place your skull between some stereo speakers... Because this one is going to be frighteningly good!

Blind Bargains Qast 196: Nest Home Pixel Max



This show marks the 750th piece of audio content to arrive on the site. It also so happens to be the 9th year for J.J. and Joe to discuss Blindness related Google accessibility. That s why we thought it wild that this episode features our 2019 Made By Google event wrap up coverage. Trains, another grocery order and J.J. taking us out for a walk are some additional points of interest to notice along the route that is BBQ 196.

Blind Bargains Qast 195: The Emulation Interpolation



Oreos are amazing. Two solid cookies with something flavored in the middle. Think of this episode like an Oreo. This is the middle bit between two tech wrap up shows. Last week, in 194, we covered the Microsoft Surface event. And in 196 we ll cover the upcoming Google Hardware announcements. J.J. is traveling this week. Which left Joe to fly solo with this Features Format show. Just a word of warning, for those listening in on or near Google Assistant phones or devices the Google wake phrase gets used a lot this week.

Blind Bargains Qast 194: UberWoof Neo



This show comes to you a little later than usual because, to J.J.'s chagrin, we wanted to cover the Microsoft Surface event. Was it worth the wait or was joe wrong in thinking there was news to talk about? Well, Joe was wrong about something as you will see in "Sound Off". but the BBQ Crew was right about the future of pet transport as can be seen in the "Last Word". Catch a train while you wonder if we can get an episode recorded before J.J.'s groceries can arrive in episode 194.
