Aural Sex: A Talk with Musicologist Phil Gentry

what will i beHoly cats, I got to nerd out and learn a lot talking to Phil Gentry– he’s a musicologist who teaches at the University of Delaware who knows a lot about the history of music and politics and the inextricable influence of/on sexuality norms. Recently he wrote a book called What Will I Be: American Music and Cold War Identity that details the the intersections of art, world events and cultural identities.

We talk about what makes music sexy to us, the evolution of pop stars, artists’ representations of gender, the impact of race on our perceptions of music and much more.  You don’t have to know a lot about history or music to get a lot out of this discussion, but if you like those things, you’re gonna go bananas for this episode.
