Imogen takes you to other worlds

Poets and Muses isn’t just a podcast about poetry -- it’s a gateway to the unique minds and psyches of people all around the country and world. You can learn so much about people and their views on life when you simply sit down and talk with them for an hour, and Imogen accomplishes just that. I have personally been enlightened and encouraged from the experiences of guest poets, from disability activism to Native American culture. The podcast is especially stellar because Imogen connects with featured poets through her personal poetry; her poems always start a new conversation and shed a new light on guest poetry. I’ve truly enjoyed this podcast and I pray it continues to succeed!
