Hooked

I just listened to my first podcast from Passager and I will be going back looking at previous ones and waiting for next week! I really enjoyed “growing pains”. I felt like I was at Lake Placid and at the lunch table with the two young boys agonizing over getting a girl… I will definitely share this connection with some of my writers friends!!!

lovely

i particularly enjoyed “in the fields” both the poem and jon shorr’s reading of it.

Pleasure to hear this wonderful voice reading great poetry.

I eagerly wait for Tuesdays to hear the terrific poetry read so intensely. Keep it going!
