GLT's Poetry Radio podcasts are of the best that this technology has to offer us. I can take a two-minute break from my job and listen to a poet read his or her own work, followed by a short music interlude. The poetry and the music are usually delightful and simple, and often regional, so it's often the voice of the Midwest plains. Great stuff.
