The Podcast for Social Research, Episode 28: Theory on the Radio
The introduction of the radio was a watershed in the history of human communication. In Theory on the Radio, a live radio broadcast in collaboration with Montez Press and Mathew Gallery, BISR faculty Raphaele Chappe, Rebecca Ariel Porte, and Ajay Singh Chaudhary contemplate economics, poetry, and pop music on the radio–and read Walter Benjamin’s radio play, “The Mississippi Flood of 1927.” What kinds of economics, aesthetics, politics, and potentialities inform the history, the present, and the future of radio? Is there a critical theory of the radio? This edition of the podcast was recorded live on July 19th, 2018 and broadcast on WGXC and Wave Form.
