Guests: Gordon Hempton, Gordon Wood, Andrea Rock
Coming up on today’s edition of Radio Times in Review: we’ll hear about silence, and the sounds that drown it out, when we listen to Marty’s interview with Emmy Award-winning acoustic ecologist, GORDON HEMPTON. Earlier this month, he claimed to find the quietest spot in America. Also, we’ll learn about Benjamin Franklin’s transition from British loyalist to a champion of independence when we listen back to Marty’s interview with GORDON WOOD, author of The Americanization of Benjamin Franklin. Lastly, we’ll talk about dreams: why they exist and what determines what we dream about. Writer ANDREA ROCK interviewed neuroscientists, psychologists, and sleep researchers to get insight into the ever-elusive world of dreams, which she wrote about in her book The Mind at Night.
