    In which Joel and Basie discuss The dispatched and Flameproof painting by Bertolt Brecht, translated by David Constantine and Tom Kuhn.

    In this episode we do a fair bit of talking about the humanitarian crisis at the US/Mexico border. If you’re concerned, consider donating to relief funds. We donated to Save the Children. We also purchased Dreaming America, published by Settlement House Press. The book is a collection of translated poems from young people in detention centers. Sales of the book go to support legal funds for those detained in border camps.

Love it

I’m not very familiar with poetry, visual and performing arts are the areas I participate in, so I’m enjoy this podcast a lot.

This is My Podcast

So, in all fairness, I should not get to review it. The reason why is fairly clear. My strong personal bias should delegitimize my opinion, but as perhaps the only person who experiences it here on Apple Podcasts , I feel it is my job to review it and help people find it.

You may notice that I didn’t give it 5 stars. I’m not unreasonable. Our discussions can be tangential, somewhat rough and you may not learn anything but I believe in the project. Each episode surpasses its predecessor, we have a broad focus on types and times of poetry and, most importantly, as someone who has a varied podcast diet, I wouldn’t have started this podcast if I’d been able to find anything that would fill this niche.

I hope you’ll give the podcast a listen, and review it as well. Even if you give it one star, because that kind of information is important. Thank you for your time.
