Music has the power to impact audiences in so many ways. Canción Exploder presents the opportunity for famous musicians and songwriters to communicate the inspiration behind some of their popular songs. This podcast is ideal for the musically curious and is refreshing, entertaining and enlightening. It offers a window into the motivation and artistic processes behind songs straight from creative mind of the artist. Guests are open and honest as they explain the complicated feelings (and sometimes traumas) that have led to their healing through artistic expression. An example of this is shared when Mon Laferte (‘Pa' Dónde Se Fue', translated to English as "Where Did You Go?") explains the song's lyrics come from a letter she wrote to her estranged father.

This inside perspective allows listeners to feel a connection to some of their favorite artists. More importantly, the stories behind the music can help listeners feel a sense of empathy and understanding through others who may share similar experiences and challenges.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
