Caroline Schwabe: I’ve lived with degenerative sensoneural hearing loss all my life. Hearing loss comes in degrees, but the loss is always more than sound. It’s connections, relationships, confidence. My hearing is at a point where the most powerful hearing aids aren’t enough. My hope for better hearing now rests with a cochlear implant. I’m ready to become a cyborg. Perhaps one day in the near future technology will help me hear what you can’t. Until then, I hope My Beautiful Cyborg will help you appreciate the gift of hearing.
Andreas Schwabe – A media producer and communication consultant, his first love was radio. So naturally he fell in love with a deaf woman. Cycling and sea kayaking opportunities are limited in winter, we decided to start this blog. And Caroline told me to, so there’s that.
