Wednesday, we’re talking about a podcast that challenges listeners to refine their sense of hearing. Host Dallas Taylor says there are a ton of shows about food and taste, but he wants to be the Gordon Ramsay for your ears. His show is called Twenty Thousand Hertz. Each episode takes a sound - like the NBC Chimes or the sound of space - and explores the story and science behind it. For Taylor, sound is a way to change how we experience and enjoy life and the world around us.

Dallas Taylor is founder and creative director of Defacto Sound, and host of the podcast Twenty Thousand Hertz.
