With David RemnickNovember 27, 2020
During times of intense crisis and upheaval, music can be grounding. Amanda Petrusich, a New Yorker music critic, co-hosts this special episode with David Remnick. John Legend and Phoebe Bridgers perform from their respective homes, playing from their latest albums, which they released even though their tours were cancelled. Plus, Petrusich explains why she finds refuge in mid-century folk records, and the novelist Donald Antrim extols music as a balm for isolation and fear.
