Summary

It's Celebration time. It's about time. In mid-February Caroline and Andreas traveled to Nashville to speak and take in Cochlear Celebration. It was all go go go and rush rush rush once they got back. One more big event with a talk, and another coming up at the end of May, the pair have had their hands full. Plus the mentoring, plus the day to day re-ordering of your life once it's been blown to unrecognizable but much better smithereens.

Cochlear is Caroline's implant manufacturer. Every two years it invites all its implantees to gather (in the USA - in 2019 it was in Nashville, TN). There are lectures, information sessions, training, new product demos, free hardware service and cleaning, and just the real joy of being with people who know you're just like everyone else, but a little more like each other.

When you gather together over 1000 cochlear implantees of all ages, and loved ones, there are going to be stories, memories, and awkward moments. The Celebration Time episode has it all -- catch up!

What is My Beautiful Cyborg?

SEASON 3 - My Beautiful Cyborg: A love Story About Hearing - Most of 2019 was about podcasting, but Caroline was listening, not recording. Now the story continues with ongoing experience. The emotions are still big, with gratitude front and centre. Season three will also introduce new voices - audiologists, voice actors, broadcasters, and public speakers - we'll explore hearing from people who rely on it. The baby steps are over; join Caroline as she breaks into a run. And Andreas tries to keep up.

SEASON 2 - My Beautiful Cyborg: A Love Story About Hearing.
"Hearing isn't all about sound, it's about each other." Now Caroline is #deafnotdeaf. It has to be all good news right? Absolutely! But it’s possible to be OVERjoyed. Caroline and Andreas talk about coming out of the fog of a quiet life and reflect on adapting to hearing again. They thought they had an exciting story to tell before. It turns out hearing is like an onion. A very big onion. My Beautiful Cyborg has discovered more about hearing and how it connects us than she imagined.

So, Caroline is going to become a cyborg. She’s on the path to receive a cochlear implant. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Caroline is going to become a cyborg. She’s getting a cochlear implant will replace the parts of hr hearing that doesn’t work. Caroline can’t wait. In Episode 1 of My Beautiful Cyborg, you’ll meet Caroline and learn a little bit about her hearing loss, and what stage she’s at in the cochlear implant process. They’re putting what in my head? I have to go shopping? I’ll be DEAF DEAF?! Caroline has questions, and we talk through the answers. Meet Caroline, My Beautiful Cyborg.
