Yellowstone National Park looks different than any other place on Earth. It also sounds different.

Audio archivist Jennifer Jerrett (@jenniferjerrett) has the job of preserving the sounds of the park's wildlife and natural events. Jerrett, a sound producer for Acoustic Atlas, caught up with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson during his trip to Yellowstone this summer, and shared a few soundscapes.
