This episode of Bay Curious is a little bit different.

This week, the show tags along with Bryan Bashin, CEO of LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, to give us a taste of what it's like to navigate a loud and chaotic city while blind.

This episode is meant to be a truly immersive experience for your ears. So put on your headphones, settle in and turn the sound up.

Reported by Sam Harnett and Chris Hoff. Check out more of their work on their podcast, "The World According to Sound."

Bay Curious is made by Olivia Allen-Price, Jessica Placzek, Katie McMurran, Rob Speight, Suzie Racho, Paul Lancour and Ryan Levi. Additional support from Julie Caine, Vinnee Tong, Ethan Lindsey, Carly Severn, Patricia Yollin, Holly Kernan and David Weir.
