Mission Responsible Podcast: Mission 2 - Noise


Agents - our sensors have detected that noise pollution is the second most harmful environmental health issue, contributing to thousands of serious illnesses and premature deaths.

To discover how responsible engineering can help us combat noise pollution, Agent Somara must track down the founder of tech startup Mumbli and uncover his plans for saving the planet. Meanwhile, Agent Clark listens carefully while he sneaks into a soundscape modelling lab in the second noisiest city in Europe…

PLUS will it be music to our ears when Greig Cameron from ‘D’ Branch challenges our spies to come up with the ultimate noise-cancelling gadget?

During this week's mission to explore how responsible engineering can help us combat noise pollution, Dr Shini Somara interviews Marion Marincat, Founder and CEO of Mumbli who make hearing wellness a mainstream conversation, whilst Dr Simon Clark visits the UCL Soundscape Modelling lab and talks with Dr Tin Oberman and Andrew Mitchell, whose research is about how sound propagates in urban areas, in buildings, and in rooms, to understand how people perceive and evaluate different kinds of sounds; and how sounds can be controlled, designed, and engineered.
