This is just a list of podcasts
Aside from a lot of goofy improv podcasts, I’ve been ravenous for new sources of news, history, and decided and informed leftist analysis that can bridge the local and global. So here’s what I’ve turned to/friends have fed me. What am I missing?
I’m a poet tho I’ve given up on poetry podcasts. It’s not that there aren’t any good ones. But more the function of what I turn to podcasts for? Or a sort of cowardice?
If you make these podcasts or point me to them I will subscribe:
-Noises of food cooking.
-The ins and outs of workplace organizing.
-Bottom-up news and analysis re: Buffalo, Erie County, WNY.
-Working through Kathy Acker’s poems, one poem at a time, to infinity.
-My friends and their friends, talking.
Greg Bem reviewed my latest book, Someone’s Utopia (2018), at North of Oxford. I appreciate the many analytical lines of flight in the review as well as the double-edged vocabulary he uses to describe the work–to capture it’s difficulty and sprawl, what would compel some readers and absolutely turn others off. Thank you, Greg. This also reminds me of one goal for my writing going forward–after I for the most part finished this one in 2016: to write less damaged work, to write that knits things together, that pulls long threads around each other.
