There is nothing more beautiful, rich and inspiring than sound. Sure, it's a statement from someone who's life is simply embedded in sound, so it might be a biased opinion, but still. A soundscaped narrative jolts the imagination like no other means of storytelling, with its capability of creating a true theater of the mind. Music holds rhythm and emotion while anchoring itself to your memories, creating a soundtrack of life. A well-made podcast can be as captivating as any book, movie or fireside story. Or imagine a simple field recording of -let's say- a Christmas atmosphere with bells and carols, just close your eyes and listen.
