This podcast is exceptionally interesting to those interested in poetry. It discusses things about poetry and the poets themselves. Overall, it has a nice atmosphere of discussion, but if you are seeking a poetry podcast, this is not a podcast for you. I suggest looking up the NPR: Poetry Off the Shelf Podcast if you are interested in poetry readings.
Expansive and Entertaining
I truly admire how much the podcast enhances and expands Poetry Magazine. Even if you are not a subscriber to the magazine, the podcast gives great access to contemporary poetry. In addition to its usefulness it is highly entertaining. I enjoy the hosts' comments and I love hearing the poets reading their work. It adds immediate interaction and connects poet and audience. Please keep it going! Thanks for what you have given us so far.
Great podcast for poetry and conversation
I love this podcast and listen to each podcast several times throughout the month. The relaxed format provides context and the poem is the highlight, but we hear small sections of the poem later during the discussion to illustrate chosen moments or effects. With every hearing I feel I hear the poem better. A great way to join a welcoming wonderfully experienced poetry-loving conversation.
