Scuttlebutt Ep 57: Sound, Noise, Hearing, How to Pronounce Tinnitus. Audiology

Dr. Theresa Schulz (LtCol Air Force Ret.) and Dr. Amy Boudin-George are some of the most preeminent hearing experts in the country and they have devoted their pursuits to helping combat hearing damage in our warfighters. Naturally, we really needed a science lesson to get Nick and Vic up to speed on how hearing works and how it gets damaged, before we could learn about the steps that are being taken to protect and minimize the damage done in the field and beyond.

October is National Audiology Awareness Month, and we take hearing for granted and rarely treat it as the precious and amazing, complex system it is. Thanks for “listening” in on this episode all about hearing!
