A jury selection for the 2019 Hot Docs Podcast Festival, Sounds Interesting is a show about all-things sound.
The show's focus is on our relationship with sound, whether scientific, social, psychological, cultural, spiritual or just plain fanciful. Most of all, we have fun exploring everything and anything that Sounds Interesting.
Listen to our first episodes with your hosts Shyloe and Pete and find out why Hot Docs said we're "part of the next wave of great Canadian podcasts." And please let us know what you think Sounds Interesting.
From Beethoven to "miracle tones" and synthesizers to bass, Canadian media icon George "Strombo" Stroumboulopoulos offers Shyloe, Pete and the show's listeners an intimate tour of the soundscapes that shape and nurture his world, including the way he uses sound to soothe his post-concussion symptoms.
As Shyloe and Pete continue to explore our relationship with space sounds, they encounter the threat of hostile aliens as they probe questions about balancing the quest for exploration and discovery with our moral duty to future generations. This episode includes interviews with Canadian astronaut Jennifer Sidey-Gibbons, SETI researcher and York University professor Kathryn Denning and Bryan Gaensler, author of Extreme Cosmos and director of the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Toronto.
Join Shyloe and Pete as they boldly go where no podcast has gone before, examining NASA recordings and talking to astronauts, astronomers and anthropologists as they seek to understand sounds from galaxies far, far away and in our solar system
In their debut episode, Shyloe and Pete take a ghost walk with a psychic and consult paranormal experts as they investigate electronic voice phenomena (EVPs) and the sounds, stories and science behind them.
