Seen and Not Heard

4.8/5

Critic Rating

What happens when you lose something you thought you'd always have? What happens when the thing you lose is one of your senses? Bet Kline is deaf. That wasn't the case a year ago. Now that her life has been upended, she has to figure out how to carve out a new path for herself and navigate her way down it.Easier said than done.


Critic Reviews

Sam McDonald • The Audiophile Jul 7, 2022

"It's not everyday that you find an audio drama where the main character is deaf. There is strong feeling of sincerity and genuine care being put forward. This is clearly a very intimate subject for Caroline Mincks, and they wanted to do the topic of deafness proper justice in an audio medium. It made the bold choice to depict the experience of deafness in an purely audio medium. It succeeded with flying colors."

Elena Fernández Collins • Bello Collective Dec 2, 2020

"This podcast actively made me want to punch something. Stories by d/Deaf people about their experiences are few and far in-between, even more so in an audio-only medium, and Seen and Not Heard is a treasure, heart-breaking and gripping in the search for empowerment."
