All About That Bass

If you listen to vintage music, one of the first things you?ll notice is the complete lack of bass. But turn on a Top 40 station today, and you?ll hear song after song with deep, sub-ratting bass tones. So how and why did this change happen? For this episode, we worked with OnePlus to tell the story of our collective obsession with bass, and the one device that transformed the sound of popular music. Featuring hip-hop legend DJ Jazzy Jeff and Roland's Paul McCabe. Buy the OnePlus Buds 3, featuring dual drivers and BassWave enhancement.

Industrial Musicals

For more than three decades, it was common for American companies to put on ?industrial musicals? for their employees. These elaborate productions could rival Broadway shows, and featured original songs about the company and its products. And while this music was never intended for the general public, once you hear it for yourself, you might just get hooked. This is a story about bathroom remodeling, corporate art, and one man?s obsession with a forgotten corner of pop culture. Featuring comedy writer and collector Steve Young.

Auto-Tone

The sound of a roaring combustion engine is a fixture of modern life. But as electric vehicles become more and more common, these mechanical sounds will gradually be replaced with artificial tones that have been designed from scratch.

Wilhelm Scream Remix

For more than seventy years now, filmmakers have been using and reusing a particular scream. Without a doubt, this is Hollywood?s most famous sound effect. Many people even know it by name.

Zelda: A Beep to the Past

Music is a quintessential part of the Zelda series. And some of Zelda?s most iconic melodies go all the way back to the original game, on the Nintendo Entertainment System. These tunes were born in an age of 8 bits, and 5 lo-fi channels of audio. But those limitations forced composer Koji Kondo to make them as distilled and powerful as possible.

From Cylinders to Streaming

The history of recorded sound stretches back over a hundred and fifty years, starting with a device that could ?record? a voice on a piece of paper. Today, we can enjoy lossless streaming anywhere we go? but getting here wasn?t easy. In this episode, we worked with Qobuz, the high quality music platform, to chart the history of audio mediums, from cylinders made of tin foil and wax, to vinyl, 8-track, cassette, CDs, and mp3s. Along the way, we explore the innovations and quirks of each format, with memories sent in from our listeners and the 20K team. Featuring Adam Tovell from the British Library Sound Archive.

Seventh-Inning Stretch

Baseball fan or not, there?s one song that virtually every American knows? or at least, we think we do. ?Take Me Out to the Ball Game? is one of the top three most recognizable songs in the country, next to ?The Star Spangled Banner'' and ?Happy Birthday.?

Vocal Stratosphere

Our vocal system is incredibly complex. What we call ?the voice? starts with very precise movements of our vocal cords, and then goes through an entire ?resonation system? that includes our throat, mouth, lips, tongue, and teeth. With enough control over these components, people can do some truly mind-bending things with their voices, creating sounds that feel out of this world?from rumbling lows to piercing highs, and even two notes sung at once.

The Spatial Race

 In the 1960s, stereo sound revolutionized the music industry. But it turns out, a pioneering engineer named Alan Blumlein had actually invented stereo a full three decades earlier. Due to tragic events in World War II, his innovations were forgotten for decades. In this episode, we worked with OnePlus to tell the story of how audio has evolved from mono, to stereo, to quadraphonic, to surround sound and beyond. Today, we even have immersive, three-dimensional systems that can simulate 128 speakers using just two.

Soundalikes

?Soundalikes,? also called ?voice doubles,? are voice actors who perform as characters that were originally played by someone else. They?re used extensively by studios like Disney and Pixar, in order to keep their iconic characters consistent across games, rides, toys, and TV shows. In live action movies, soundalikes fill in for the leads, and record lines for the film?s many rough cuts. But being a great voice double is about much more than just being a good impressionist.
