What’s a difficult pleasure? In this episode of the Podcast for Social Research, a sequel to our episode on guilty pleasures, Raphaële Chappe, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Rebecca Ariel Porte, Michael Stevenson, and Cora Walters continue to work on the tangled problem of what to do with art objects you find aesthetically compelling but politically or morally conflicted. Case studies range from Wagner to Shakespeare, Céline, Bertolucci, Sofia Coppola, Woody Allen, Morrissey, and Lana del Rey.
