Pulse of the Planet

By Batove - Jul 17 2019
Read more
These are soulful stories that have a warmth and color that helps exercise a healthy imagination. Progressive thinking that most people young and old can enjoy. I have heard people say that if images are the essence of National Geographic then Pulse of the Planet has given sounds of the world a venue to represent. I may need to buy some new reference grade headphones to see how good these moments can sound.

Short and sweet

I listen every morning right after my alarm. Love the short explorations of different topics. I learn something new and it gets my brain into gear. Thank you!
