Customer Reviews


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.

Used to be better but still ok

The show was better with Christian Wiman as host, and in the half hour format. I like Lindsay, although she doesn’t get many words in compared to Don, who really goes overboard in some of his poem descriptions. I have rolled my eyes many times while listening to him,and I feel there are times he comes across as disingenuous or too polite to criticize anyone harshly. Still, they do get an occasional great poem/poet on the show, and their back catalog has a lot of gems.
