In this episode, we talk about noise pollution—a much bigger problem than you might realize!

Some of the things we discuss include:

  • the most common (and annoying) sources of outdoor noise
  • adverse mental, physical, and social health effects from too much noise exposure
  • what safe noise levels even are
  • ways to reduce noise in cities (hint: it has a lot to do with cars, like basically everything we talk about)
  • and a whole lot more
