On today’s episode, Kraus explains how the sounds we’re surrounded by everyday–-like a noisy leaf blower or the soothing sound of music-–really matter and can impact our physical and mental health. Plus, she shares tips for building a healthy “sonic world.”
I have read Prof. Kraus’ book, “Of Sound Mind,” and exchanged emails with her.
I usually don’t spend the time listening to podcasts–for me, the amount of information received isn’t worth the time compared to the amount of information I can learn by reading–but knowing how insightful Prof. Kraus is, I did spend the time to listen to this one.
You should, too. It’s worth the time.
I particularly liked her statement that “[o]ur choices as to how we live our lives sonically really do matter.”
That’s sound advice.
