Wordshakers from Hearing Voices
Andrei Codrescu of The Exquisite Corpse takes us on an hour-long odyssey for National Poetry Month. Featuring stories by Scott Carrier, Barrett Golding, Larry Massett, Marjorie Van Halteren, among many more. We'll hear Thomas Edison's wax recordings of a speaker believed to be Walt Whitman, Lord Alfred Tennyson banging the podium, and Allen Ginsberg placing a personal ad. Then stick around as Jan Kerouac responds to her father's poetry and parenting style in "Jan on Jack." Plus, Marianne Faithful recites Gregory Corso, DJ Spooky remixes Vladimir Maiakovski, and Carl Sandburg answers, "What is Poetry?"
A special episode which is not to be missed.
