Description

ENCORE Shh - can you keep it down? Nope. Not unless you want to do away with civilization. Our buzzing, humming, whirling, machine-driven world is a poster child for technological progress, right? As is hearing loss. It’s driven one man to search the world for silence. We’ll hear what he didn’t hear, and what Einstein predicted we should hear in deep space, where gravitational waves may reveal the hidden sounds of the universe, including the birth of black holes.
Guests:

George Foy - Author of Zero Decibels: The Quest for Absolute Silence
Garret Keizer - Author of The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want
Craig Hogan - Director for Particle Astrophysics at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
