Episode details

Why do we love music? Why do we turn to music to comfort ourselves after a breakup? Why does music have the power to unite a group of people? In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, Suzanne LaGrande interviews opera singer and neuroscientist Indre Viskontas, author of How Music Can Make Us Better. Viskontas discusses the connection between neuroscience and music, why people prefer some kinds of music and hate other kinds, how music is used in healing and can make society as a whole better.
