Sounds Wild and Broken: Exploring the Sonic World with David George Haskell
Our planet is filled with sound — birdsong, music, speech. Even the earth itself makes noise. That sonic diversity is in danger.
In a new book, author David George Haskell explores the many sounds of our world, visiting forests and swamps, caves, oceans, the animal kingdom, cities and the human experience. Sound, says Haskell, isn’t just a chaotic buzz, it’s a creative force. And as the oceans and cities become louder, we lose more than sonic diversity: we inherit a less beautiful, less connected and less just world. David George Haskell joins us this Friday at noon.
Airdates: May 6 at noon and May 7 at 11 a.m.
