The Listener

Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik, The Timekeeper) is a 30-year-old paramedic living with a secret: he can read people's minds. Until now, he's kept it to himself, fearing that his telepathic powers were a sign that he's slowly but surely losing his mind. However, the more he learns how to use it, the more he comes to believe that this telepathy thing can be pretty darn cool - that this confounding curse might, in fact, be a gift. Now that Toby has decided to step out of the shadows, and embrace his fate, he's got a new perspective on life.
