Have you ever broken down in tears while watching a movie with especially emotional music? Is there a scene from a film that makes you sob every time you hear the song? Kristen Meinzer and Rafer Guzman, co-hosts of the weekly podcast Movie Date from WNYC's The Takeaway, drop by to talk about movies with sad music.

Then, this year Yo La Tengo's album I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One quietly turned 15 years old. Writer Jesse Jarnow, author of Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo And The Rise Of Indie Rock, gives perspective on the lasting influence of the iconic 1997 record.
