Awful

I love poetry but the poems presented here are ‘meh’ at best, performed lazily, and the discussion that follows is nothing but effete say-nothingness that speaks more to the sensibilities of the “hosts” rather than the craft, history, or medium of poetry itself. If you like poetry that lacks spirit in favor of experimentation, and analysis akin to fly-fishing on a frozen lake then go right ahead.

Keeps updating with 20 unplayed episodes

For some reason, over the past month or so, this podcast keeps updating with 20 unplayed episodes. The problem is, there are no new episodes...all 20 are past episodes. So you have to go through and click "mark as played" on all of them. Big pain. Deleting.
