Jen Pastiloff has built her identity and career around connecting with people. She also has profound hearing loss and tinnitus and is deaf without her hearing aids. As a result, she’s had to cultivate other ways of understanding and hearing. On today’s episode, Jen and I talk about the specific challenges that come with tinnitus and hearing loss, the assumptions people make if they don’t know that she’s hard of hearing, and how a sense of courageousness helped her carve out a space to truly be herself.
