But once you hear it, you'll start noticing it everywhere. Featuring musicologist Alex Ludwig and Strong Songs Host Kirk Hamilton.

    Vocal Discords

    Musicians like Justin Timberlake, Adele, Björk and Rod Stewart have all had surgery to treat vocal nodes.

Featuring vocal coach Katie Talbot and Professor and Chairman of the Ear, Nose, and Throat Department at Drexel University of Medicine Dr. Robert Sataloff.

Excellent

For the initiated and the curious alike, this is an awesome podcast. For the curious mind, the show presents a variety of themes linked to sound, an apparently basic subject that is revealed as vast and far reaching in this project.For the initiated, I can safely say this is a jewel of a project: perfectly crafted, state of the art sound engineering that is a pleasure to listen to, cretive choice of themes, expert analysis, strong narrative. It's no wonder after a couple of episodes it's become one of the most talked about shows in the industry. I never miss an episode, enjoy!
