There is an interesting discussion in the Internet at the moment. There is a recording that may either sound like Yanny, or like Laurel. There is a Tweet that asks you to vote.

Then, Business Insider gives an explanation for what is going on. Somebody did a high-frequency recording of the word “Yanny”, and a low-frequency recording of the word “Laurel”. The two recordings were then overlaid, in such a way that it is difficult (if not entirely impossible) to hear both. The recording discovery of it can be found in another tweet. (Slight language warning.)
ICYMI: Earlier on @NerdItUpPod Explains I figured out what was going on with the stupid freaking Laurel or Yanny debate. Even after solving it, it has consumed my day… IT'S FREAKING LAUREL PEOPLE!!! #LaurelorYanny #LaurelvsYanny https://t.co/QxK4oF6tvk

The fascinating thing for me: when I started, I could only hear Yanny. After listening to the different pitch levels, however, I can hear both with Laurel as the main one. I have no explanation.
What about you?
