Ep24 - Riz Ahmed

Season 4, Ep. 24

My guest today, Sound of Metal actor, Riz Ahmed shares his extraordinary experience of learning American Sign Language, becoming a drummer and putting his body through rigorous work-outs all in the space of a few months. To absorb himself in the role of 'Ruben', Riz tells me how engaging with the deaf community truly taught him how to listen. It feels entirely appropriate therefore to say 'Let's get Listening!'
