This podcast is great to listen to. It incorporates the perfect blend of fun, boundary pushing thoughtfulness and serious poetry conversation. It makes me think and keeps me smiling. I can't wait to hear what Kierstin and Uche do in the future! Love it!!
My new favorite podcast!
Uche and Kierstin are warm, welcoming, funny and smart, gently broadening my poetry awareness and appreciation. Their discussions of poems are insightful yet down to earth, letting me appreciate a poem with them as a football fan relives the highlights of his favorite team during the halftime show. I know I'm going to learn something, laugh, and be inspired when I listen. Thanks for taking me on the poetry voice journey with you!!
Love the energy and pace of these two!! So nice to hear poetry conversation that appeals to poets and civilians alike. Now more than ever, our society needs the dialogue ignited by the art of poetry, and Poetry Voice will surely broaden that base through its lively performance and diversity of "voice." Great work!!
