THE SHOW
Hi! I'm Mike. I'm fascinated by sound and all the things related to it. That’s what Reasonably Sound is about: the science, theory, and culture behind all things audio.

There may be some pretty specific, and even intimidating, things that come to mind when you hear “podcast about sound”: physics, music theory, acoustic engineering. But I like to think of Reasonably Sound as a show about sound for people who don’t think they'd like a show about sound.

Beyond music, acoustics, and physics, Reasonably Sound is about understanding how audio contributes to our understanding of the world. I've talked about what a scream is, and how they function in music versus film. I've discussed the "braaam" (which you probably know as 'the Inception sound') and some controversy regarding its authorship. Where do accents come from? Why do people slur their speech when they're drunk? Why are “dog whistle politics” called that?

The show is called Reasonably Sound because we take a broad view of what counts as “sonic” - in the hopes of showing that there’s a lot of surprising stuff to hear in the world... it just might mean occasionally listening in unexpected ways.

THIS PATREON
RS’s costs are detailed in the GOALS section, but the long and short of it is that paying for studio maintenance, podcast hosting, research and my time help make sure the show can keep growing and improving. I'd love nothing more than if I could do that with your help.

However you can support the show is endlessly appreciated. Even if its just listening, it means the world to me. If you happen to have a buck to spare: it makes a difference. Either way - there’s no shortage of stuff out there asking for your attention, and hard earned cash, I’d be honored if you’d toss any portion of either my way.

More voices! Every once in a while I’ll be able to pay someone fairly to help file stories I couldn’t get myself, do on location interviews (not that Skype isn't rad), or fancy field recordings with related travel costs.
