We join American biologist and writer David Haskell on a sonic journey, back to the first sounds made on Earth.
David’s latest book is “Sounds Wild and Broken,” a lyrical exploration of the diverse sounds of our planet and the perils that sonic diversity now faces.
It’s an exquisite lens through which to think about our relationships with the living world, and how we can enter more fully into a conversation that is always waiting for us.
David is a professor of biology and environmental studies at the University of the South in Tennessee, and author of the widely-acclaimed book “The Song of Trees.”
He spoke with Nathan in March 2022.
