Podcast 13: Understanding Preferences for Loud Music

Elizabeth Beach

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT: Elizabeth Beach, PhD

And while it might seem easy to raise awareness that results in quieter recreational music venues, Beach says it’s complicated, so safe listening initiatives require support at various levels to achieve change.
