A listener talks about one of his favourite games for iOS, Timecrestc.
We discuss guide dogs. A listener asks how much difference do they make really, and are they too much hassle for what you get back?

In the Bonnie bulletin, it’s time for me to feel the fear and do it anyway, get back on the virtual bike, and go to a cricket match. Bonnie also talks about snoring. It’s something not often discussed, but it can cause a bit of friction. We ask if anyone’s found any good techniques for managing it.
A listener asks why I stick with Focus Braille displays and whether I have looked at others.
We revisit the question of dodgy audio in Windows. All this, and so much more.
