Today’s podcast was out of order

I love this podcast because I love poetry but find the discipline of reading poetry difficult to maintain. This podcast helps.

That said, today’s poem was to be Part 4 of Shelley’s “Ode to the West Wind,” and it was part 5, although the label said Part 4.

In spite of that mistake, it’s a 5 star podcast.

Great poetry podcast

This is a great podcast with the reading of a poem and some short comments. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while. There is something special about hearing a poem read aloud. The host of the program does an excellent job of reading, very human and able to convey his appreciation of the the poem, information about the poet. The other podcasts related this one - Close Reads, The Play’s the Thing, Libromania - are quite good. I feel like I am among friends when I listen.
