The NPR Interview and Video!

Hey all. The Scott Simon interview will run during the last fifteen minutes of Weekend Edition's second hour this Saturday. To find out exactly what time that is (could be anytime from 6:45-11:45), go to and plug in your local station's code. I hope that clarifies things. Hope you get to hear it.

Concurrent with the interview, the NPR website will run this video trailer.

It's called Soundproof and it is the long awaited Cochlear Implant video directed and edited by my cousin, Rebecca Haimowitz! She's done a phenomenal job and we're hoping this exposure will help us find the funding to finish it.

Where is the captioning or subtitles for the hearing impaired in the video?

Great video, Rebecca. I loved it. Thanks for the insight. Was that just a portion of the video or the entire production? It was interesting to see the frustration in Josh at his earlier audiology visit followed by the 100% score on the test months later. The success of the cochlear implant does not receive the attention it deserves. It truly is a miracle device.

Hey anonymous...

Good point. We had to rush to finish the video so NPR could post it this weekend. We'll get a captioned version out as soon as we can. Sorry about that.

Hey Josh - hurry up and get those captions in there! Will the NPR broadcast be available in text? Contact Walter Gallant at and see if he can do captions for the video. He's quick.

Will do. Rebecca's filming in Texas, as soon as she's back we'll have the captions up. I believe transcripts of the NPR interview can be purchased for a very small fee on their site.

How cool! a video about hearing aids for hearing people!!!!

Too bad people like me need the "aid" and or captions to understand it. Nice.

Thanks a load!

BTW: you needed to rush it? why? Rush for the people who need it.
