Twenty Thousand Hertz
#60 | Do Not Disturb
Alarm sounds have been around almost as long as humans themselves. But as our world has transformed, so have they. Today’s alarms are having an unexpected effect on our minds and bodies, and can even be putting our lives at risk when we’re at our most vulnerable. Dr Judy Edworthy and Yoko Sen talk to us about our alarming sound environment, and how it can be improved.
20K is hosted by Dallas Taylor and made out of the studios of Defacto Sound.
