With a childhood fascination for aquariums and a passion for music, it’s little wonder that Ocean Conservation Research founder Michael Stock-er has made championing the sounds of our oceans his life’s work.

In this episode of MHP, this humble jazz fan shares some of those childhood memories. He talks about why he set up OCR, using Kurtosis as a measuring tool, his role as a translator- and why 911 impacted our oceans. Michael also shares some of his favourite sounds and reveals the one sound he wants us all to hear.


Michael Stock-er is a naturalist, acoustician, musician and the founding director of Ocean Conservation Research is a not for profit centre made up of scientists, engineers and ocean advocates dedicated to improving the environmental health of our oceans. With a focus on marine-bioacoustics, Michael has published and presented numerous research papers and articles to governments and organizations around the world and is the author of the fascinating book: Hear Where We Are : Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place (Springer 2013)

You can find out more about Michael and OCR on the great resource website www.ocr.org

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
