You can pick up the boom and rumble of thunder with your ears. But there is more ways you can listen to lightning, and that's through AM radio!

Lightning emits electromagnetic radiation, including radio waves. These radio waves can be picked up on AM stations. They come through as sharp buzzing sounds.  At night AM radio waves travel further and can capture sound from storms hundreds of kilometers away. 

A little fun way to listen to lightning have its own radio show!
