Check out Close Talking!

In November of 2016, we launched our sister-podcast Close Talking, a show that dives deep into individual works of poetry and plumbs their depths. New episodes post on the 2nd and 4th Friday of of each month. That show is hosted by Poetry Spoken Here producer, Jack Rossiter-Munley and his good friend Connor Stratton. Connor is an MFA student at the University of Minnesota and provides technical, textual analysis while Jack usually offers broader connections and a random assortment of historical and literary resonances. Just like Poetry Spoken Here, Close Talking is available on iTunes, stitcher, and soundcloud.
