In the age of social media, we spend a lot of time communicating and very little time listening. April 11 is the day to change that with Free Listening Day. People are encouraged to stand outside holding a sign that says "free listening", and then wait and see what people will say to them. This event is the brainchild of Benjamin Mathes, founder of a group called Urban Confessional. He talks with us about how Free Listening Day grew from an idea to a global movement.
On Second Thought producers Sean Powers and Linda Chen celebrated Free Listening Day by opening up their ears to people in Atlanta.
