  1. We started the day by making a new friend. Greetings to @WeTheHumanities !
  2. Then moved on to a quick summary of yesterday's discussion on babies, mothers & music, and how that would inform today's discussion.
  3. We started by sharing some of the reasons why we listen to music. Reasons given were very diverse.
  4. From here, we examined what researchers have identified as the primary reasons for music listening.
