Ep 104. Pam Brown: Skeptical optimism in a post-human age
Plastic orchids, a foggy morning, the differences between ‘basically’ and ‘literally’ – Pam Brown could make any material into a poem and it would somehow work. It was an absolute joy to talk to Pam about what she’s reading, how Sydney continues to change, how she puts her poems together, what it is to write poetry in the early 21st century, and what the purposes of such an activity might be.

Ep 103. Finally reading Donald Hall
I’ve resisted reading Donald Hall for so long, probably as a misguided act of loyalty to my favourite poet, Donald’s late wife Jane Kenyon. Recently I was given his book A Blue Wing Tilts At The Edge Of The Sea and finally opened it up to find another view on Hall and Kenyon’s relationship through the poem ‘Long Days’. Show notes The Third Thing by Donald Hall Episode 3: On Jane Kenyon’s ‘Happiness’Episode 93: On David Brooks’ work and Kenyon’s ‘Depression in Winter’
Ep 102. Chris Wallace-Crabbe on ‘Rondo’
In this conversation, Chris Wallace-Crabbe discusses his latest collection, Rondo, which brings together around a decade’s worth of new writing. He talks about how the collection tracks parts of his family history, the use of language that defines his work, his experiences as an Australian poet living in the US, and how poems come to him.
