"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more.

Editor's Note:Charles Limb is a doctor and a musician. He explores the topic of cochlear implantation: how it helps restore hearing loss, but also what implants may lack. Specifically, how implants may be adapted to help individuals better experience music. A must-see!!!

Editor's Note from Meagan Hughes:From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Žene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bośnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia.
