After damaging his vocal cords trying to be a rock singer, New Yorker staff writer John Colapinto became fascinated with the human voice. On the next Fresh Air, Dave Davies talks with Colapinto about how the voice evolved, how babies learn to vocalize our words so quickly, and why accents we pick up as kids are hard to shake. His new book is “This is the Voice.” Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
