A Wonderful Podcast

Thankyou for this comprehensive and eclectic mix of poetry.
To those reviewers who say it represents a fraud of some sort etc...... I say,twaddle!!! Not a bit of it.
Each poem is fully read out, and has the actual writing/wording of each said poem also as an accompaiment.Fantastic.

The beginning of each podcast merely indicates that further reading and elucidation can be gained from going to their aforementioned website.THEN,after that mere few seconds introduction, the poem itself is read out in full.
This type of introduction(merely telling the listener about podcast details), is perfectly common and acceptable in many podcasts, from BBC 'History' to Melvyn Bragg's 'In Our Time'.
Great podcast.

All episodes I've downloaded so far have been recorded messages telling me to visit a website, nothing more.

Well done!

What a charming, informative and educational podcast. It takes me back to my school days; the masters would encourage us to read things we would never otherwise have considered and, by doing so, greatly enriched our vocabulary and broadened our horizons. The feeling of the thrill I used to get when I discovered a new author came rushing back. This proves that poetry is something everyone can enjoy, particularly when presented in such an excellent manner.
