Vi Khi Nao on Working with the Universe
The poet Vi Khi Nao joins Avni Vyas and Andrew Wessels for a talk about simile as emotional-cargo transport, poems that arrive within five minutes, sandy mussels, and the dangers of reading sapphic writings in front of small children. Plus: Nao reads excerpts from her new TOA chapbook, “Every Dress Is a Simile.”
Testing, Testing: Welcome to the TOA Podcast
Welcome to Episode Zero of the TOA podcast, where we invite readers to eavesdrop and interlope on conversations among The Offending Adam’s editors and the authors we publish! In this episode, our host Avni Vyas talks with fellow TOA editor and podcast-editor-in-training Nik De Dominic for a kind of podcasting sound check. Future episodes will feature authors reading their work and talking with our editors about poetry and the creative process. But today we’re testing the mic with a chat about brilliant farts, neon f**ks, poems, and life. Thanks for listening, and please excuse our rough edges.
