"What does Jewish identity sound like, and why have scholars from around the world devoted their careers to studying it? The Sounding Jewish Podcast features host Dr. Samantha M. Cooper in conversation with global musicologists, ethnomusicologists and sound studies scholars who specialize in the music and sound of Jewish experience. Each episode highlights a guest’s area(s) of academic interest, preferred research methodologies, and decision to study music and sound. Our goal is to better understand what it means to be a twenty-first century Jewish music studies scholar.

The second episode of Season 2 of The Sounding Jewish Podcast features Dr. Jessica Roda. We discuss her forthcoming book about Ultra Orthodox Hasidic and Litvish female artists from New York and Montreal, as well as her new project on music, spirituality and healing in Orthodox Jewish circles."
