Suzie Lechtenberg • Vogue Dec 7, 2023

"It gives you an uneasy, voyeuristic feeling, like, Should I be listening to this? Is this private? But that’s also what makes it so powerful and revelatory."

Fiona Sturges • Financial Times Mar 12, 2023

"(Season: Sisters) ...complex, inventive and richly textured portrait of “the trials and tribulations of loving someone since you were born”. It’s this extraordinary candour and willingness to be vulnerable that makes Sisters, and indeed all The Heart productions, so compelling. Prest has built a career out of turning deeply personal stories into clever and affecting audio narratives. Sisters is up there with her best."

Dana Goodyear • New Yorker Feb 26, 2020

"In Prest’s elaborately sound-designed productions, she whispers, self-examines, and confides, blending reënactment with verité excerpts of her real life: we listen as she argues, flirts, makes out."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian May 21, 2017

"There is much about The Heart to admire – the exceptional soundscapes, the unpicking of taboos – but the tone can drive me doolally. The precision and emotion of her language, as well as her unsparingly truthful storytelling, made for poignant, Proustian audio."
