People and Their Poems is a podcast about the poems that make a difference in our world. In each episode, I'll talk with a person who has been influenced by poetry and become a poet or a supporter of this literary form. We'll learn about the poems or lyrics that became their mentors or their muses as they have explored the world of the poem. And we'll hear the poems of the poets who are our neighbors.
My name is Sandy Carlson, and I will be your host. I am a member of the Connecticut Poetry Society as well as poet laureate of Woodbury, Connecticut.
