Plunging from the clouds and crashing to earth, each raindrop is part of a rainstorm symphony. The intermittent winds swell and the ground saturates. Delight in a collaboration of elements in this “Rainstorm” episode.

Interesting:

Did you know that the sound of rain has a color? “Aren’t sounds invisible?,” you might ask. Have you heard of “pink noise?” I hadn’t until I did a little research during the production of this episode.

Most of us have heard of calming white noise. Pink noise is akin to white noise, though the Cleveland Clinic distinguishes the two. “Pink noise is a ‘color’ of noise. So is white noise. Both colors contain all of the frequencies that humans can hear (ranging from 20 hertz to 20,000 hertz). The human ear, though, usually hears pink noise as being ‘even’ or ‘flat’ and perceives white noise as ‘static.’” In other words, and for example, repetitive raindrops generate pink noise, while the consistent whir of a fan produces white noise.

The article goes on to cite an NIH study that showed that pink noise increased deep sleep and dramatically improved memory in older adults, though pink noise had not been compared to white noise.

Others suggest pink noise, such as the sound of rain, even soothes anxiety for some.

Whether you’re looking to pacify or slumber, I hope you enjoy this “Rainstorm” nature pod episode.
