Rebekah Romberg and Luis Antonio Perez host "Music Blocks," CPR's podcast that explores the connection and community created by music.

How music is created. What makes it special. And how it connects us. They’re all themes of CPR’s podcast Music Blocks, offering digestible episodes that work as well in cars as they do in classrooms. The third season is now out with a focus on how the instruments themselves can create connection and community across cultures. We talk with Music Blocks creators and hosts Rebekah Romberg and Luis Antonio Perez from CPR’s Audio Innovations Team, as well as Carla Aguilar, the show’s music education consultant.
