What happens when you lose something you thought you'd always have? What happens when the thing you lose is one of your senses? Bet Kline is deaf. That wasn't the case a year ago. Now that her life has been upended, she has to figure out how to carve out a new path for herself and navigate her way down it. Easier said than done.

BET:

What happens when you lose something you thought you'd always have?

What happens when the thing you lose is one of your senses? 

My name is Bet Kline, and...I'm deaf. That wasn't the case a year ago.

Now my life has been upended, I have to figure out how to carve out a new path for myself and navigate my way down it.

Easier said than done.

We are excited to partner with the excellent audio drama Forgive Me!, a heartfelt and very funny show that explores the lives of the eccentric parishioners of St. Patrick's through their confessions to Father Ben. Like Seen and Not Heard, this show uses some real-life experiences from the creators' religious upbringings to set the scene and tell the story, and it is a pleasure to get to feature it here! 

Please enjoy the pilot episode of Forgive Me!, "The Simple Joy of It"!

Transcript. 

Margaret educates Father Ben on the unfamiliar and unorthodox concept of confessing "the usual."
