THE JOY OF SWEAT The Strange Science of Perspiration

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sophie Amoss

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

If you feel kind of gross when you sweat, Sarah Everts will make you realize how cool it is that we humans regulate our body temperatures this way. Narrator Sophie Amoss channels the author’s wry humor with impeccable timing and a slightly scratchy timbre. Everts travels down several fascinating and quirky paths—sauna theater (yes, that is a thing), sniff dating events (yes, also a real thing), and rare genetic disorders resulting in too much sweating or no sweating at all. Amoss is pitch-perfect at capturing the right tone every time. She won’t let your attention falter during the scientific explanations either. After learning that elephants flap their ears, bees vomit on themselves, and pigs roll in the mud to cool themselves down, maybe sweating isn’t so bad after all. A.B.
