A blind guy, his grandma with dementia, and a killer cactus are the key players in this hilarious and heart-warming show. Motl is trying to figure out how to get through to his elderly grandmother, but she just wants him to read her memoirs, and the further he reads, the more their lives begin to merge and intersect. Armed with an accordion, Matthew Shifrin, the creator of Radiotopia’s podcast, “Blind Guy Travels” takes us on a musical journey to answer the question “How do you get through to someone who’s not quite there?” To find out, we’ll hunt down a Yiddish Rhyming Dictionary, debate with Marx and Lenin, and search for a missing Grandma in everyone’s favorite grocery store.
