From screaming infants in their cradles to cinematic scream queens in a 1970s horror movies, there's no denying the universal language of yelling your head off about something.
But why do we do it?
What are we communicating?
In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Julie and I explain just how a little screaming can do you a world of good.
Plus we'll enjoy a few sound clips of screaming children and screaming actors.
A good time will be had by all.
