Podcast for Social Research, Episode 57: At Year’s End with the Angel of History—2022 in Review

In episode 57 of the Podcast for Social Research, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Rebecca Ariel Porte, Danielle Drori, Mark DeLucas, Lauren K. Wolfe, and Michael Stevenson look back at their 2022 in cultural experiences, from high-brow to middle- to low-: visiting NYC landmarks (for the first time), the New York Philharmonic (and David Geffen Hall’s questionable acoustics), the Upanishads, diary-keeping (and -destroying), Sybille Bedford (vs. Henry James), Lucy Ives’ Life is Everywhere, the Xenoblade Chronicles (an allegory for communism?), Pink Floyd, “low-powered” cultural objects, Station 11, Bernadette Mayer, Stockholm’s Vasa Museum (a museum dedicated to failure), Chester the dog,  Annie Ernaux, and autofiction—again, and again, and again.

Notations

Corrections: Sybille Bedford’s mother, Elisabeth Bernhardt, was of a German-Jewish background, not English-Jewish; the Paul Wittgenstein referred to as having been institutionalized at Steinhof was not the brother, but the first cousin, once removed, of Ludwig Wittgenstein.
