Awesome episode of the Infinite Monkey Cage today on Radio 4 – all about the human voice. It’s amazing what the voice can do as demonstrated by beatboxer Beardyman.

Brian Cox and Robin Ince are joined by comedian and beatboxer Beardyman, acoustic engineer Prof Trevor Cox and neuroscientist Prof Sophie Scott to explore the amazing capabilities of the human voice.
