Critic Reviews

Patricia Nicol • The Times UK Jan 21, 2024

"What singles out June: Voice of a Silent Twin is that it is the surviving twin, June, who falteringly unfolds her own, desperately sad story. The result is a compassionate, deftly made and gripping nine-part podcast series. Even if you think you know the story, give this a listen...will move you."

Fiona Sturges • Financial Times Jan 7, 2024

"This unsettling, immersive series comes with a swirling soundtrack that expertly mirrors the intensity and claustrophobia of the twins’ relationship, as well as the bafflement of those they kept determinedly at arm’s length. The Gibbons twins needed compassion but were instead handed a ferocious punishment which culminated in unthinkable tragedy."

Stephen O. • Podcast Delivery Jan 1, 2024

"June: Voice of a Silent Twin is a complex story, but the important message is that not everyone has a voice or is treated equally in our world. The struggle to adapt underscores the complex nature of twin relationships and the challenges faced by individuals who do not fit into “typical societal norms”."
