Great podcast! Easy to get sucked in.

This podcast is wonderful. It takes your interest within the first episode. So often I come across some that I have to wait for them to get better but not this one. It’s great from the start. Main character has a great since of humor in navigating her new life since becoming deaf. All characters are well played and I’m just all over satisfied with my listener experience. Give it a listen!

Hilarious, witty, and heartbreaking 😭

Well, I started listening and now I can’t stop. The narrator Bet is navigating a newly closed off world where complicated familial relationships get complicated-er, and the community they seek speaks a whole different language.

Bet copes with my favorite mechanism, humor, and I’m finding myself laughing out loud when I’m all alone. Bet also absolutely eviscerates rude/creepy men and it’s a delight to listen to the sharp takedowns ✨

The sound design is absolute ear-candy and beautifully highlights some of the struggles that Bet faces as they walk through a regular day. I’m so excited to learn more about Bet, but also about deafness and a perspective that I’m unfamiliar with.

All my thumbs WAY up 👍👍👍

Excellent story and insight

I feel like I learned a lot from listening to this but in a sneaky way because the story was well written, acted, and produced.
