Film critic, radio traffic announcer and popular Instagrammer - Tommy Edison delights in doing things you wouldn't expect a blind person to do.

Blind since birth, Edison set up a YouTube channel to review films from a blind person's perspective. The comments section was quickly filled with sighted people fascinated about what it's like to be blind. Edison then launched a second channel to answer questions like "can blind people draw?" and "how do blind people dream?"

BBC Trending speaks to him about how he got started.
