Welcome to Poetry Spoken Here

Poetry Spoken Here is a podcast series from host Charlie Rossiter and producer/technical director, Jack Rossiter-Munley. In it, we explore how poetry comes to life when read. Episodes feature interviews with poets, segments about the impact of performed poetry, and examinations of poets and poetic themes of the past and present.

New episodes are posted on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month. You can listen to previous podcasts and other exclusive audio in our "Podcast Archive."
