Vocalogical busts its first myth!

Babies can scream for hours on end without seemingly damaging their voices. This led to many claims that newborns have flawless technique and instinctively understand how to vocalize properly. This isn’t quite true, and Vocalogical digs into the how and why such loud sounds can come out of such a small child!

As a bonus, we compare a lion roar to a baby cry, and they aren’t as different as you may think.
