Documentarian Nicholas Sherman on The Marketplace of Ideas this Sunday

This week on The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall talks to documentary filmmaker Nicholas Sherman, director of Soundtracker: A Portrait of Gordon Hempton. Hempton, one of the world’s best-known field recordists, has dedicated his life to traveling the United States and the world to create “sound portraits” of distinctive places. In Soundtracker, Sherman follows Hempton’s road trip in his 1964 VW bus which becomes a quest to capture the sounds of a train and a songbird together.

The Marketplace of Ideas airs every Sunday afternoon at 1:00.
