About

Heard Productions is helmed by Hannah Sobol, who believes in the power of a shared story to create community. Heard Productions uses all mediums, but specializes in Audio Storytelling. 

Stories have the greatest capability to create change when told from the perspective of the person who experienced it. At the heart of Heard is centering social justice and highlighting stories that have been told, but not HEARD.
