Best New Releases + Women in Music with Dr. Susan Rogers


Do you ever get to the end of the year and wish you had read just a few more new releases? Sally’s here to help! She’s read over 50 releases from 2022 and has sifted through her reviews to pull out her top five new releases (so far).

Then, in honor of our Women in Music theme this month, Alana talks with Dr. Susan Rogers, cognitive neuroscientist, Berklee professor, and music producer responsible for engineering Prince’s Purple Rain album, about her new book This is What It Sounds Like: What the Music We Love Says About Us. Dr. Rogers shares a bit about her career, including the experiences of women in music production, teaching at Berklee, and working with Prince.
