The Deaf Traveller ,

An absolute must of a listen

I’ve had the privilege of working with Hear Me Out for one of his episodes. Since then, I’ve been listening to all of his episodes (while I’m travelling) and even as a deaf person, it’s been an education set through informative and personal discussions with his guests, about deafness and all aspects of life.

What’s more, I do feel like I’m sat round a table with them, drinking a cup of coffee, listening to the discussion at hand.

Well worth a listen!
