Focusing on the fascinating species of the sperm whale, this conversation brings together José Luis Espejo, researcher and curator, and Txema Brotons, biologist specialized in whales and acoustics, and Tursiops’ Association scientific director. The podcast proposes an archaeology of the means by which science and other branches of knowledge first began to listen to and classify cetacean sounds. The scientific research carried out can help us understand the impact of anthropogenic sound on the communication systems of whales, with a focus on the cachalots.
The podcast departs from talk took place at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, on May 25, 2023, as a part of the public program of the exhibition “Wu Tsang: Of Whales.”
