I don't know if I heard it wrong but when I did as you said it didn't work. So then I checked on internet about the modulo 10 algorithm and realised that not all numbers are mutipled with two but only the alternative numbers. It works.

hi so I just started listening to your podcast and I'm starting from episode one I think I'm on like the 30th one now? but I just want to say that this is my favorite podcast. you guys are both so adorable. I really appreciate that your podcast is open minded and non judgmental while also being so thorough in researching facts. I'm a really picky person and I believe that the only thing truly wrong in the world is suffering and people hurting each other so I really love that you guys don't mock anything but you're still light hearted and funny. thank you for existing. ♥️

overtone singing might have been better explained by an audio engineer who can do it... like me! :) All it is is changing the shape and cubic volume of your mouth so that it resonates at the same frequency of one of the overtones produced by your vocal cords. When it resonates it amplifies that overtone until it's loud enough to hear as a separate tone.

my local grocery store does both! It offers a discount on carrying a cloth bag, and charges extra for purchasing a plastic bag.
