Summary

There are few times in life when the line between yesterday and today changes everything.

January 28, 2018 was Caroline's last deaf day.

The Activation Episode is about January 29, 2018.

Caroline and Andreas listen to Caroline's activation audio. Activation was billboarded on multiple previous podcasts, but life took a turn as we learned to cope with being a hearing couple. It's been a year, okay?

We think this episode was worth the wait. This isn't bombast and fanfare. This is awakening and discovery.

As always, it's honest and raw, from the compressed tedium of setup and calibration, to Caroline's first hearing moment. And yes, you CAN hear it; best first words ever.

Honestly? Listen. It's more fun to hear someone regain their hearing than to read about it.
