Tour the Poetry Game Reserve

In perfectly-sized nuggets of audio, this podcast lets poems into your ears and your life every week. Through it I have discovered poets whose work has challenged me and charmed me, the best doing both simultaneously. The strange and beautiful is allowed to speak for itself, and Lizzy Turner is a warm and reassuring voice as she leads you through the brilliant, majestic game reserve that is modern poetry and spoken word. Listen now.
