  • One of the best interviewers and poetry discussions

    This is one of the best poetry podcasts (I’ve listened to too many). The guests write vibrant poetry across a range of styles. The host,Helena de Groot, skillfully draws her guests into conversation, asking interesting questions. She creates a warm comfortable space to enjoy poetry and the creative process of writing it. more

  • When Time is Kind

    I don’t sleep well which means I have time, and lots of it, to listen to podcasts. I also even more rarely leave reviews. This episode with Spencer Reece was exceptional, even more so because Reece is an exceptional person, and his writing phenomenal. His story and readings shook me in so many ways, and the tears flowed as he read his poem ‘Margaret’. Am so grateful to have had this introduction to his work.

  • Curtis Fox was better

    The MCs are terrible. Curtis had so much better interviewing skills too. The new girls aren’t articulate at all. The 4 stars are for the content though.
