From crickets to whales, the sounds of a healthy planet 14

From bird song to electronic music, sound shapes our world. David George Haskell, professor of biology and environmental studies at the University of the South and a Guggenheim Fellow, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss sonic diversity and its importance to human and animal life – and how we are silencing those critical noises around us. His book is “Sounds Wild and Broken: Sonic Marvels, Evolution’s Creativity, and the Crisis of Sensory Extinction.”
