Today's episode from 25th March 2022. We end the week with a glimpse, or rather an ear, to the future. We're discussing what electric cars will sound like in years to come. It's after Hans Zimmer began working with BMW to develop compositions for its upcoming models. Then later, with it being Mothers Day in the UK this weekend, we've got a moving piece about a how a mother/daughter relationship was rekindled through tarot cards. Silent electric cars could be a thing of the past as BMW aims to develop a series of audio cues for its models. For The Financial Times, Peter Campbell explores how the company is has turned to the expert knowledge of the Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer who believes that this is a chance to ‘end the dictatorship of the internal combustion engine.’ Our relationship hasn't always been easy and for a long time, tarot was one more thing she didn't understand about her. For Salon, Meryl Phair describes how as the world changed during the pandemic, turning to tarot helped her open up to her mother again.
