Hey MindsEye friends, Paul here, and today I’m super excited to talk to you guys about the fun and quirky duo behind the “Rare with Flair” podcast. Casey and Cassandra are best friends who share the same rare disease as well as a perspective on life not shared by most. Their podcast is a platform they use to share their lives, aiming to showcase the beauty and normalcy in disability in a way that’s funny, insightful, friendly and all-around bubbly.

It’s Not Just a Podcast

“Rare with Flair” doesn’t really feel like a traditional podcast, in that it feels more like you’re simply sitting down and reconnecting with old friends.  Episodes cover a wide range of topics, from the amusing misunderstandings with sighted people to the anticipation and dreams encapsulated in their 2024 vision boards. Each episode, whether it’s discussing personal recaps of the year, offering a blind girl’s gift guide, or answering burning questions from their audience, is crafted with care, humor, and an undeniable sense of camaraderie, which we’re all about here at MindsEye. 

Listeners have a lot of great things to say about the joy and fun Casey and Cassandra bring, highlighting how relatable and entertaining their stories and life experiences are, especially for those in the disability community. Their candid discussions resonate deeply, fostering a sense of belonging and understanding that’s rare to find.

Who Doesn’t Love a Tier List?

In their latest episode titled “The Definitive Ranking of All Assistive Technology,” Casey and Cassandra talk about tech, specifically assistive tech and rank over 20 blind and low vision assistive technologies. They create a tier list to highlight their favorite tools, sharing personal insights and experiences with each piece of technology. This episode promises to be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding the landscape of assistive devices through the lens of those who rely on them daily.
