On the second episode of Noisy Balls, I was privileged to speak to long-time advocate and all-round nice guy Martin Stewart.

I have to tell you all that this is an interview that I have been wanting to do for many years and I am absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to speak with such a charismatic and insightful personality.

Martin talked with me about his extremely painful childhood, the highs and lows when he played blind cricket for the Braille Blind Cricket Club, for Victoriaand for Blind Cricket Australia,the exceedingly difficult period in his life subsequent to the unfortunate train incident in 2002 and the tireless work that he does as National Individual Advocacy Officer at Blind Citizens Australia.
