    In China, ornithologist Sam Snow and his colleague gather as much data about a species of bird as possible -- but it comes at a cost. Sam Snow is an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist, currently a Ph.D. candidate at Yale University. He looks at birds to explore the evolutionary consequences of mate choice for sexual ornamentation, mate-system evolution, and social behavior. His research seeks to understand how females evolve new traits that overcome sexual coercion, reshaping mating systems and male social behavior. In search of answers, he creates theoretical computer models of behavioral evolution and attempts to test these theories by documenting the behavior of birds in the wild. This story originally aired on The Story Collider's podcast on October 27, 2017, in an episode titled "Pressure: Stories about stressful situations."

    When Pat Furlong’s sons are diagnosed with a severe type of muscular dystophy, she’s determined to find answers. Pat Furlong is the Founding President and CEO of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest nonprofit organization in the United States solely focused on Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne). Their mission is to end Duchenne. They accelerate research, raise their voices in Washington, demand optimal care for all young men, and educate the global community. Duchenne is the most common fatal, genetic childhood disorder. It affects 1:4,600 boys worldwide and has no cure. When doctors diagnosed her two sons, Christopher and Patrick, with Duchenne in 1984, Pat immersed herself in research, working to understand the pathology of the disorder, the extent of research investment and the mechanisms for optimal care. In 1994, Pat, together with other parents of young men with Duchenne, founded PPMD to change the course of Duchenne and, ultimately, to find a cure. Today, Pat is considered one of the foremost authorities on Duchenne in the world.

    Ecologist Cylita Guy finds unexpected adventure when she studies bats in the field. Cylita Guy is a PhD candidate and ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellow in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto. Broadly interested in zoonotic diseases and their wildlife reservoirs, Cylita’s research focuses on bats and their pathogens. Using both field surveys and computational methods she is investigating why bats seem to be good at carrying viruses that they sometimes share with humans, but rarely get sick from themselves. When not in the field catching bats or at her computer analyzing data, Cylita looks to help others foster their own sense of curiosity and discovery about the natural world. In conjunction with the High Park Nature Centre Cylita has started a Junior Bat Biologist program to engage young, future scientists. She also works as a Host at the Ontario Science Centre, educating the public about diverse scientific topics. Finally, Cylita’s hilarious field exploits are featured in a general audience book titled Fieldwork Fail: The Messy Side of Science! In her down time, you can find your friendly neighborhood batgirl chasing her next big outdoor adventure.

    Pendant 90 minutes, le 15 juillet 2018, une grande partie de la planète a suivi la finale de la coupe du monde de football. Nous avons enregistré une soixantaine de radios qui commentaient le match à leur manière, dans le monde entier : Ghana, Mali, Brésil, Argentine, Pologne, Croatie, Thaïlande, Bangladesh, Indonésie et Maroc... Le traitement sonore du même événement donne à entendre ce qui nous rassemble dans un monde globalisé, mais aussi les différences culturelles qui persistent. Certaines radios entrecoupent la diffusion de publicités, d’autres d’appels à la prière, de dédicaces ou de l’annonce de l’heure locale, bombardant des jingles ou de la musique à la mi-temps. Dans une époque globalement visuelle, où nous sommes tous connectés via le petit écran et l’internet, écouter la radio semble une pratique désuète, mais le commentateur reste une figure importante pour les amateurs de football du monde entier. Ce collage sonore propose de réécouter un récit dont tout le monde connaît l’issue, à travers ses langues, ses accents, ses rythmes et ses mélodies, sur fond de grésillements et de saturations propres à la radio hertzienne. Radio Mondial (Español) Durante 90 minutos el 15 de julio 2018, una gran parte del planeta siguió la final de la Copa Mundial de Fútbol. Grabamos unas 60 estaciones de radio del mundo entero comentando el partido, cada uno a su manera : en Ghana, Mali, Brasil, Argentina, Polonia, Croacia, Tailandia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Marruecos… El tratamiento sonoro del mismo acontecimiento nos ofrece escuchar aquello que nos une y nos reúne en un mundo globalizado, pero también las diferencias culturales que persisten. Algunas radios interrumpen la transmisión con publicidad, otras con los llamados del muecín, dedicatorias, anuncios de la hora local, bombardeo publicitario y música durante el medio tiempo. En una época globalmente visual, donde estamos conectados a través de pequeñas pantallas y el internet, escuchar la radio parece una práctica antigua, pero el comentador sigue siendo una persona importante para los aficionados de la pelota. Este “collage” sonoro propone re-escuchar un relato del cual todo el mundo conoce el final, a través de una variedad de lenguas, acentos, ritmos y melodías sobre un fondo sonoro de interferencias y saturaciones propias de la radio. Radio Mondial (English) On July 15, 2018, over the course of 90 minutes, a big part of the planet followed the FIFA’s World Cup final tournament. We recorded around 60 radio broadcasters from all over the world which all commented on the match each in their own way: in Ghana, Mali, Brazil, Argentina, Poland, Thailand, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Morocco, among others. Through the sound-based coverage of one of the planet’s biggest events the act of listening unites people and brings us together in a global sense, but also gives us the opportunity to identify our cultural differences. For example, during half-time, some radio broadcasters interrupt the match with advertisements, while others have prayer calls, personal dedications, the local hour announcement, or simple bombarding listeners with jingles and music. In global and mostly visual times, when we are connected through a small screen and the internet, listening to the radio seems like an old-fashioned practice, but for soccer lovers the commentator is still a relevant and an important character in their lives. This sound collage invites us to listen to a story of which we all know the end through a variety of languages, accents, rhythms and melodies within a background of crackling and saturation, very common sounds in radio broadcasts.
