Ingenuity of the Bionic Ear : Cochlear Implants

Sam Silberman has had a hearing problem since he was a young child. His parents got him a hearing aid early on, and as he grew he replaced his hearing aids with ever newer hearing aids. But in 1999 he did something transformational for himself: he had a cochlear implant. From somewhat indistinct sound and speech, he immediately leapt to clear sound and increasingly clear speech. Today you wouldn’t know he has a hearing problem unless he told you.

With my co-host, Kevin Franck, I interviewed Sam and we explored his journey from deaf child to Senior Area Manager for Cochlear Americas, the global leader in bionic hearing devices.
