Episode 151 - Tony Plocido. Dan Sterenchuk and Tommy Estlund are honored to have as our guest, Tony Plocido. Tony Plocido started writing poetry in high school. However, he didn't get serious about until about 2009 when he got invited to "The Poetry Filibuster" in Kansas City, MO. This was 5 day, 18 hour long reading. The poets he met there encouraged him to move to Kansas City, MO. This turned his hobby into a passion. He has since published two books. The first, Sucker Punch Wisdom, was published by Write the Future. This was done with two other K.C. poets (Jeremy O'Neal & William Peck). His second book, Aging and Other Side Projects, was released in December 2016. Aging and Other Side Projects is a (mostly) solo book. His third book, Felt This so Many Times, was released in September 2018 from Spartan Press KC. In February 2019, he became a Cracked Walnut Board Member. Tony now lives back in the Twin Cities and tries to perform whenever possible. He also facilitates a workshop to help poets become better performers of poetry. He is also your current curator / host of Poets & Pints.
