How does sound work?
Why does the sound of nails on a chalkboard make our skin crawl? Why does a bubbling brook make us calm (if more likely to need to pee)?

More about Podcast Next Gen
In 2023, Podcast Next Gen is a collaboration between Cosmos Magazine and the National Youth Science Forum.
The reporters are year 12 students from across Australia – the next generation of scientists, science journalists and podcasters. These ‘shortcast’ episodes have been written and recorded by the students, giving them the opportunity to work with real science journalists and editors to make their science concept come to life.
