Water and Sound

Cynthia_BarnettWe speak with environmental journalist Cynthia Barnett about how regular rainfall shaped everything from our religions to our civilizations to our very bodies – and how it’s not going to be regular for much longer. Plus: an acoustic engineer’s guide of some of the world’s great sound phenomena, from Stonehenge to a highway in California.
