Beautiful and educational

I’ve listened to every episode. Beautiful conversations, especially since Kevin Young’s start. Also— if you’re new to it definitely go back and listen to the conversation between Kevin and Paul M. (Kevin being the guest poet, rather than the host-beautiful.) I really appreciate the way Kevin talks to poets about their process and also teaches about different types and aspects of poetry form and rhyme. I’ve learned so much, thank you.

Muldoon was Great, Young is great

Each episode is a hoard of treasures worth (repeated) listening.

It’s like being on the moon looking down-up at the world, its uncanny, nuclear connections laid bare and unclabbered, illuminated with the roughnesses of language.

Beautiful Merwin poem

Intelligent discussion. Beautiful
