Happy Poetry Month! Sure, we waited until the end of the month to record out latest episode, but it’s a pure poetry delight with three absolute superstar poets: Jason Purcell, Jónína Kirton and Tolu Oloruntoba. We talk about their new books, Purcell’s Swollening (Arsenal Pulp Press), Kirton’s Standing in a River of Time (Talonbooks) and Oloruntoba’s Each One a Furnace. In addition to three stellar interviews Dina gets Jen, Jason, Tolu and Jónína to play a game of Name that Celebrity Poetry Book!  Who will win?!
