Summary

This episode is a long-delayed follow-up to the recovery episode, but Caroline needed a little break (the Recovery episode really tuckered her out). But first, Caroline catches up on some firsts: first post-surgery hair (because they shaved off a big bald spot on the right side), what Caroline calls her beautiful scar (if you can find it), and the new Cyborg provides a complete guide on how to execute a successful, if not gracefully, post-surgery sneeze; because but when you've just had a cochlear implant, the sensation of blowing the darn thing out of your head is real. Caroline can barely tell the story - because she's laughing.

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.

"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.
