PSA: My recorder malfunctioned so the beginning of the interview was lost. I'm so sorry friends.
Rachel and I discuss motherhood, poetry, womanhood (both separated and connected to motherhood), children, and she reads a poem or two.
DJ and I discuss poetry, parenthood (both children and adults). We talk about creativity and it's origins, fear and it's place and the current socio-economic status. She reads several poems.
Lisa Ann and I discuss her various projects and business ventures from Haiku (and The Haiku Guys and Gals) to her grant and her plans for it. She reads several works and speaks on senators. In the show, I misquote a haiku from a video game titled Mark of the Ninja. Here is the correct verse:
Five Hundred Men Lie
Vanquished Before Tetsuji
Takes Off His Blindfold
Eli and I discuss music both as a career and as an abstract thought. The world of traveling musicians and the trials they face, family, friends, hopes, and stress are all discussed herein.
