This week, Suzi F. Garcia had the honor of speaking with Kay Ulanday Barrett, a self-described queer brown Filipinx disabled transgender boi. Barrett is one of the most generous people we have ever encountered, no doubt due to their commitment to care work—which is another way of saying his commitment to collective survival. Their essay “To Hold the Grief & the Growth: On Crip Ecologies” in the January 2022 issue of Poetry is an absolute must read.

Amy and her husband Ben are the quintessential thinkers. They felt the lure of the Camino and it now plays a big part in their lives....and the lives of their chickens.

Yes, John Milton was important, and yes, Paradise Lost has been part of the canon since the 17th century - but why should we read anything by John Milton today? Do we imbibe his poetry like medicine? Is it a slog through cerebral but sterile prose? Or is there something wilder, more compelling, more alive? In this episode, Jacke talks to biographer Joe Moshenska, author of Making Darkness Light: A Life of John Milton, about the poet beloved by everyone from Virginia Woolf to Jorge Luis Borges to revolutionaries all over the world.

Indie b lived the first six years of her life in hell, and without professional psychological attention, her suffering multiplied and festered like an uncared-for open wound. Highly traumatized, with a maltreated brain, which was developmentally unbalanced, Indie b had hardly any integrative whole fostering experiences before the age of seven. This left her with very few cognitive abilities. Being raised in a foster (not a caring) system, where she got little to no home training. Indie b carried around excessive amount of anger bottled up inside of her, which causes her to, too often show my ass in the face of disregard and injustice. Indie b has shared the stage with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Ben Vereen, Kenny Loggins, Carl Anderson, Shadow Stevens, Rolls Royce, and Candy Stayton. Indie b sings classical (authentic) voice, gospel, and Rhythm and Blues music. As a soloist, Indie b has moved audiences in shows, musicals, concerts, and recordings.

Prophecy, History, Poetry, Apocalypse, Epistle, Narrative, Law, all of the preceding represent some of the genres we find in the Bible. Learning to recognize genre leads to a better reading of scripture and provides needed context that is often lost with a 'straightforward' reading of the Bible. What often surprises many Christians (and even scares some) is the realization that Myth is a Biblical genre. This idea of Myth as a Biblical genre is often ignored and even rejected by many believers. After all, if the Bible contains myth, how can we trust any of it? Kevin and Lee discuss this concept in this episode. Wanna tell us how good we're doing? Wanna knock us down a few pegs? Email us at email@example.com! Thanks for listening!

In this seventh season, we are going to read six poems about romantic love. Love may seem to be the most fundamental subject for poetry, but interestingly, it is not. When we consider the great poetic traditions of almost any people, we find that love is by no means the first matter that has inspired their poets. The poems we will read together come from several different periods in time, and I would like to examine, among other things, how the language of romance has changed in the English-speaking world over the centuries. Today's piece is "Sonnet 130: My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun" by William Shakespeare. Poem begins at timestamp 5:13. Sonnet 130: My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun by William Shakespeare My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damasked, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground. And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare.

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Thomas Hardy (1840 -1928) and his commitment to poetry, which he prized far above his novels. In the 1890s, once he had earned enough from his fiction, Hardy stopped writing novels altogether and returned to the poetry he had largely put aside since his twenties. He hoped that he might be ranked one day alongside Shelley and Byron, worthy of inclusion in a collection such as Palgrave's Golden Treasury which had inspired him. Hardy kept writing poems for the rest of his life, in different styles and metres, and he explored genres from nature, to war, to epic. Among his best known are what he called his Poems of 1912 to 13, responding to his grief at the death of his first wife, Emma (1840 -1912), who he credited as the one who had made it possible for him to leave his work as an architect's clerk and to write the novels that made him famous.
