RadioLab tries to create for us what a world without words might be like.
Worth listening to (it’s about an hour long in two three parts) and thinking about if you can figure out how… I can’t think really well about this yet.
Feels like it’s worth thinking about. Their take on Shakespeare – at about 25 minutes – is fascinating! Who knew how much of the way we use language could be laid to the Bard!
The second half is, at least for mediators, more powerful than the first – amazing.
The third part reminds me of how my mind and mouth behave differently when I speak a little bit of Spanish. And how my twins briefly had their own language – which came before English. Wish I’d encouraged them to keep both.
