The World According to Sound

Science Podcasts >

A miniature radio show that tells stories with sounds instead of, well, stories. Sign up on our website to receive new episodes: http://bit.ly/1oGTcHz. Every ninety-second episode is about a different sound. You could hear Earth Whistlers, mudpots, or bridges; a dying language, a forgotten language, or a way to communicate without words; what it's like to have auditory hallucinations, hearing loss, or tinnitus; famous music made by accident, by a murderer, or by a computer; or the call of the world's loneliest whale. We release new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday. You can sign up to get the show by RSS, email, and soon text message. Or you can follow us on social media to catch the latest episodes. http://apple.co/1QgLKi1 www.theworldaccordingtsound.org https://twitter.com/Thewatsound https://www.facebook.com/TheWorldAccordingtoSound
