Cinema Science Podcast: Scientists Chat About Their Favorite Movies and Shows

S01E09 A Quiet Place: A Parent’s Dream World of Silent Monopoly

January 22, 2019

If they hear you, they hunt you. We watched the movie A Quiet Place in which a post-apocalyptic world of silence is overrun by creatures that hunt using sound. A bearded-John Krasinski and his family navigate this quiet world, surviving games of Monopoly, grain silos, and babies. Bioengineering Graduate Student Marta Iversen joins us to help us understand how we hear, how hearing aids and cochlear implants work, and how hearing compares to a cat.
