    Synesthesia

    Synesthesia

    Synesthesia is a neurological condition where one sensory experience gets combined with another, meaning someone might hear sounds when they eat, or see colors when they listen to music. So what exactly is synesthesia? And what’s it like to go through life with these unique sensory connections? Featuring the voices of neuroscientist Dr. Richard Cytowic and five people with synesthesia.

    Sing Gently

    Sing Gently

    After composer Eric Whitacre finished Virtual Choir number 5 in 2018, he thought the project might be done for good. But 2020 was just around the corner, and the Virtual Choir was far from over. For our last episode of the year, we've re-edited and remixed our episode about the Virtual Choir, and added a brand new section to bring the story up to the present.

    Sounds Worth Saving

    Sounds Worth Saving

    Alan Lomax believed that the culture of poor Americans was important and worthy of saving. So he spent decades traveling the American South and recording obscure musicians on their front porches, in churches, even in prisons. Today, he's considered an American icon, but the road to becoming a legend wasn't an easy one. Featuring Southern Historical Collection archivist Chaitra Powell, American Folklife Center curator Todd Harvey, and filmmaker Rogier Kappers.

    Conlang

    Conlang

    Sci-fi and fantasy creators often use constructed languages (or conlangs) to help us believe that the characters come from ancient times or distant galaxies. But what happens when a fictional language jumps off the screen and into the real world? This story comes from the Imaginary Worlds podcast.

Fantastic!

Sound is something we take for granted. The team behind 20k, through research and ingenuity, give a glimpse into the vast and beautiful soundscape that is all around us. I never imagined so much could be said about sound. It’s amazing. Don’t miss this pod.

Incredible

I’ve been listening this podcast for hours. It’s top quality and so interesting. I can’t believe how much work is put into each one of the episodes. Love it!
