  • Pulse of the Planet

    These are soulful stories that have a warmth and color that helps exercise a healthy imagination. Progressive thinking that most people young and old can enjoy. I have heard people say that if images are the essence of National Geographic then Pulse of the Planet has given sounds of the world a venue to represent. I may need to buy some new reference grade headphones to see how good these moments can sound.
