The whale-talk interview was very cool! When Hai-Ting then described how whales make their calls, the phrase “air going back and forth between sacs” brought to mind the action when you swish a liquid in your mouth back and forth between cheeks. Obviously, a HUGE simplification, but I hope it’s roughly on target.
The other thing that came to mind during the interview itself was the scene from “Finding Nemo” where Dory tries to talk to the whale, all the while Marlin is insisting “You can’t speak whale!” Hilarious scene, but perhaps maybe we soon CAN speak whale!
@Hai-Ting: Break a leg and enjoy Ann Arbor (One of my favorite towns: Go Blue!). It’s just too bad your visit is during the cold and dreary time of year.
