What does the weather; the French; and the human voice; have in common?

In this episode, Shane chats with Dr Noel Hanna.  Noel Hanna has experience in teaching, science communication and research.  He is currently a research associate working in Joe Wolfe’s Acoustic group.  Noel has so far had an interesting and varied career, going from being a linguistic student, a meteorologist, school teacher and now a researcher into the physics of the human voice.

Noel answered Dr Sean Farrell's question about combating the rise in trend of distrust in experts?  Noel then asks our next guest this:
