The theme of the party for the last week or so has been sound, and the huge role it plays in the outdoor experience. In, “The Natural Noise We’ve Been Drowning Out,” we examined why recordings of nature don’t quite have the same impact as the real deal.
Then I sat down with Matt from Fog Chaser to talk about how the sounds of the outdoors offer inspiration. If you enjoyed that conversation — Matt is actually here with us this morning, he’ll be weighing in on the discussion, and answering your questions too!
Before we close out this little series on Cole’s Climb, I wanted to know:
Are there certain sounds that bring you calm?
How does nature sound near you?
What sounds are you trying to escape by heading outdoors?

Matt and I will both be checking in throughout the day to read your comments and respond!
Expand the discussion by sharing this post with a friend:
I'm in Perth, Western Australia with a small park directly behind my house. Even if I'm not outdoors, opening the windows brings the sounds of wind in the trees and the dawn/evening birdsong inside.
That's particularly poignant right now - the time that the Kookaburras start their evening laughter is when I would have been walking our 18yo dog who we put to sleep a week ago.
Once again I'm living in an urban setting, but I still get to hear the birds, an always welcome sound.
Just had a discussion about how soothing waves can be... gentle, constant or pounding and intermittent. Either variety gratefully replaces the everyday noise that seems to be getting louder all the time. Loved the podcast!
The urban noise thing is just a distraction, I guess ,rather than comforting to me. I much prefer the sounds of nature. At least at this moment I’m hearing thunder! Thanks for encouraging me to listen!
