Last Show Recap

First half guest Dr. Glen MacPherson has researched and documented a Hum heard by people all over the world. The sound is louder indoors than outdoors, and louder late at night than during the afternoon. In the more serious cases, the Hum can affect quality of life; in a number of documented instances, the torment of the noise has been life-altering. MacPherson shared the latest from his scientific investigation into the phenomenon, which seems to indicate that the culprit may be electromagnetic pollution by Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves. This was followed in the second half by Open Lines.

Using sophisticated technology, researchers have determined the science behind the process and why it is so successful for mammals of varying sizes. While 'the shake' is particularly potent for larger animals, which have looser skin, the study revealed that tiny creatures using the same technique can generate up to 20 g's of force to accomplish the drying feat. More on the story here.
