In this week’s podcast showcase, we bring to you an older product of the Ted Radio Hour podcast titled “Quiet”.

If you’re anything like me, you have been told at least a number of times that you need some down time in life. ┬áSome time for relaxation and silence. ┬áPeace and thinking. But why?

Well in this episode we begin with the story of John Francis. You have probably never heard of him, but his story falls nothing short of incredible. John went 17 years without speaking a single word.
