Storytelling

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.

Unseen: The Trafficked Truth Podcast

Victoria Roland

Host(s):

At Unseen: The Trafficked Truth podcast, we give voices to those unheard, to survivor stories that never make it to headlines. We cover stories especially of double victimized BIPOC that society feel don't deserve to be heard. Mainly, listeners will get to hear from survivors , themselves. Some to tell you more than their journey and discuss how they are thriving . Sex trafficking is a million dollar industry and affects our black and brown communities disproportionately. Our young people are missing and not being looked for. They are getting beat and raped and no one is protecting them. Sometimes their stories are shared too late. Either way, At Unseen: TTT we know there is power and strength in storytelling, true survival story telling!
