    Where Does Laughter Come From?

    Where Does Laughter Come From?

    How do you find out why we laugh? With tickling, of course! Gorillas and other great apes appear to love being tickled, and sound like they’re laughing just like us. Animal biologist Marina Davila-Ross thought tickling might connect humans and great apes - and hold the clues to the origin of laughter. To find out, she assembled teams of ticklers in an experiment full of giggles. It’s the silliest science you’ve ever heard, but the discoveries will blow your mind.

    Learn more about laughter in animals and humans in our interview with Marina Davila-Ross. Listen to the bonus interview episode available to Patrons who support Tumble at the $1/level or higher, at patreon.com/tumblepodcast.

    The Worst Sounds in the World

    The Worst Sounds in the World

    What are the worst sounds in the world? Lots of noises that can send your hands rushing to cover your ears, but only a select can be the most horrible! Fortunately, one brave acoustic scientist named Trevor Cox decided to find out, by asking hundreds of thousands of people to rank the worst of the worst sound. It was one of the first online sound experiments - and the result was a lot of fun!

    Note: This episode features sound effects, and if you’re sensitive to sounds, you may want to skip it.

Good podcast

It’s a good podcast! I wish you explained the science behind it more, though. Even though this podcast is for kids, it’s okay to actually tell us why the science works and how it works! Overall, pretty good. Stop using the podcast reviews for personal chat, and just so you know, anyone anywhere could read this so don’t tell them who you are or your usernames for stuff. I don’t want to see a discussion about religion when I look to see how good people think a podcast is. Anyway pretty good podcast.
