It’s been two and a half years since I suddenly lost the hearing in my left ear, and today I am celebrating all I’ve achieved since my hearing loss. Thanks to the BBC World Service, I am very happy to share this glimpse into my life without full sound.
Hearing Me is now live to listen to! Please note, a transcript is also available through the same link – just scroll down the page to download:
Another big thank you to Chelsea Dickenson (Audio Always) who spent 4 days following me around Madrid with a microphone, and who showed me just how much energy and attention goes into making a radio documentary.
Please take a few minutes to listen and share. Thank you 🙂
Something exciting happened last month!
I was involved in making a radio documentary for the BBC World Service, which describes some of my experiences of living with hearing loss and tinnitus, and also reminds us not to take our hearing for granted.
I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to take part in this, and to be able to share my story.
Hearing Me, is now up on the BBC World Service’s schedule: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csynqv
The documentary will be played several times so that people in different time zones can listen to it. You can find these by clicking ‘more’ below the programme information.
Afterwards, it will be available online through the same link as above, and it will also be part of their ‘The Documentary’ podcast series: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02nq0lx/episodes/downloads
Please note there will a transcript to enable listeners to follow the dialogue.
A huge thank you to Chelsea Dickenson and Audio Always for creating such a personal and creative piece, I absolutely love it, and hope my readers/listeners (!) all do too!
