Radio for the deaf


#1

I still enjoy the show even though it is reruns. I have an 80% hearing loss, but Click and Clack have voices I can understand. As with most people with hearing loss, I have trouble with female voices.
Even after their departure, Click and Clack are having an impact on NPR. I suspect the continued presence of Car Talk motivated NPR to adopt the slogan, “Our mind is a medium.” That’s what it sounds like to me.

Yes, the frequency is of utmost importance in hearing loss -vs- hearing…different people, different hearing loss. Mine is tinitis from loud noise. High frequencies are masked by the tinitis, yet low frequencies are perfect. I have trouble finding a cell phone ‘‘ring’’ that suits my needs, they get lost in all the other similar higher frequency noise polution.
