It's Nice to Hear You

Heather Li

Host(s):

Could the power of just hearing someone’s voice lead to a deeper connection? Find out how in this 6-episode story about human connection told through an anonymous matchmaking experiment. No names, no pictures, no direct contact. Over 30 days in 2020, pairs of matched participants exchange 1 voice memo a day with each other. In creating this experiment and eavesdropping into her participants, the creator and narrator's life unexpectedly changes as she learns about compatibility, vulnerability, and empathy. We all want to be heard, but we forgot how to listen. This is what human connection sounds like. For more information, check out @itsnicetohearyou on Instagram and itsnicetohearyou.com.
