8:30 Window on the World
Our brakes screech, our airplanes drone, our trucks beep: we humans like to make a noise. So much so, in fact, that some experts believe there's now nowhere left on the planet unaffected by our racket. We hear from a soundscape specialist leading a project to bring a little hush back to the wild; from a sound ecologist who has devoted his life to recording the sounds of natural habitats before they disappear, and from George Michelsen Foy, author of Zero Decibels: The Quest for Absolute Silence.
Using real stories told by real people, Melody Thomas leads a frank (but often entertaining) exploration of sex, sexuality and relationships. In this episode, Melody talks with people in heterosexual relationships whose sex lives are not so straightforward. And not so straight.
