    Exposure to noise pollution has serious health risks, and disproportionately affects certain communities. But what if regulating it would accidentally do more harm than good?

achmorrison ,

Excellent work every episode!

I work in the field of acoustics and I feel that I am always learning something new from this podcast. Mike has such a great perspective and way of describing the audio world that I always look forward to hearing new episodes. It's counterintuitive, but true, that talking about sound is often easier with the use of visuals. The fact that podcasting as a medium is purely aural doesn't stop Reasonably Sound episodes from being able to convey the intricasies of the world of sound. Keep up the great work!!

Kathy Ahfid ,

One of the best in the field

This podcast really opens your eyes to your auditory senses, so-to-speak. There’s something about the right kind of sonic stimulus that gets you to start noticing silence.

There’s some great work put in here, and the breadth of sound-related topics covered in this podcast ensures that there’s something for everyone. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s the least bit passionate or curious about the world of sound.

Crash Chords ,

Great stuff!

I’m a huge fan of Mike’s work. I feel like his ability to connect with an audience makes him great for breaking down anything intellectual and as an audiophile myself that makes this podcast super satisfying to listen to.
