Practical Criticism No. 48—Björk

In episode 48 of the Podcast for Social Research’s “Practical Criticism” series, Rebecca Ariel Porte plays Björk for Ajay Singh Chaudhary, who, as usual, does not know beforehand what the object of the week will be. They converse about pop avant-gardes, Bruegel’s *Land of Cockaigne,* utopian fantasies of Iceland, islands and the insular, the state of emergency, music designed to be remixed, protean pop personae, female friendship, nascent solidarities, music as muse, and why Björk is more like Taylor Swift than you’d think.
