Podcast: How Music Can Change Our Mood

Music can be powerful. It can change our mood, and, research shows, even change our behavior.

In this podcast, we talk with professor Derek Rucker about his research on power songs and how they might shape the way we behave after we listen to them. Then we talk with Kris Kukul, a Broadway music director, orchestrator and arranger, who helps us understand how music is crafted in order to elicit an emotional reaction.
