How does audio shape your environment?

How the sounds that come with living in a city environment affect us in unseen ways, and how we can better deal with them.

From the great planes and caves, to agricultural settlements and now to enormous cities, the environment humans live in has dramatically changed over time. With the change in the living environment, the sound we experience daily has also changed. The problem is, the revolution in humans' living environment has happened faster than our evolutionary process and there is a physical toll in unwanted sound that we are evolutionarily not equipped to handle. In this episode, we explore how the sounds that come with living in a city environment affect us in unseen ways and how we can deal with the physiological burden they bring better.
