For me, constantly hearing about all the CRIMES happening around me is stressful. And that makes ME the weird one?
Apparently, the hot new way people are relaxing is . . . listening to the live police scanner played over music. There's a website called YouAreListening.to that lets you pick a music track, a city's police radio, and mash them up.
I'll say this: It does become kind of hypnotic, hearing the dispatcher's monotone voice played over slow, ambient music. Relaxing though? Your mileage may vary.
