From tuning in to the radio when commuting to work, to belting out old classics in the car, music is a big part of our world. On this episode, we speak to the founder of the Vans Warped Tour, Kevin Lyman, who made a career out of music and philanthropy. We also hear from USC music professor and podcaster Nate Sloan about pop music and its role in our lives.
