Cranberries fields are flooded and the berries are then "picked" by a special harvester.

That is the sound of Cathedral bells ringing through the city of Zagreb, Croatia. KUOW reporter Ann Dornfeld was in Croatia recently and recorded that sound.

Seahawks fans recently lost the world record for loudest stadium to the fans of the Kansas City Chiefs, but that doesn't make the atmosphere any less tame.

If you ever wondered what it was like to sit in the midst of thousands of screaming fans, this sound provides some perspective. Listener Andrea was at the Seahawks game against the Tennessee Titans; she recorded a time when the Titans were on offense and every single person in the stadium yelled in unison trying to cause a false start.

They had been visiting the Cranberry Museum, learning about the history and harvesting of cranberries, when they decided to go on a hike. As they drove along a back road looking for a trail they came across a man in a very noisy boat of-sorts, floating around a flooded pasture. The sound you hear is of the boat harvesting cranberries.
