How often do you think about how you listen? What assumptions do you make about a person’s voice, their pitch or accent? What sound is desirable, and what’s rejected as noise?
Prof. Jennifer Stoever thinks about these questions, a lot. And so do a growing number of scholars working in a field called Sound Studies. That’s the topic of the “Sounding Out” blog and podcast, which Prof. Stoever co-founded. She’s an associate professor of English at the University of Binghamton, and she’s our guest to discuss the cultural politics of sound and listening, and how these analyses apply to music, radio and podcasting.Radio Survivor is a listener-supported podcast.
