best podcast ep i have listened to in ages


I have started listening to podcasts again in earnest because I have been able to go for longer walks recently, and I have been making my way through the Radiolab back catalogue. Anyway, this episode really got to me. Thoroughly, physically, spiritually. It’s about breathing, and it was reported and produced by Annie McEwen, Matt Kielty and Molly Webster. It’s about how a baby takes its first breath; it’s about tear gas. It’s about ventilators, diving, music, and death. It really is one of the best things I’ve listened to, maybe ever? Up there with the Invisibilia episode about mirror touch synesthesia (that one’s called Entanglement). So I wanted to share a link to Breath here: and that’s it goodbyeee
