Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 54: There is Only One Heart in my Body

New, 1 comment

This time around, Pete and Bill talk about a flowery subject slouching toward Bethlehem. It's poetry, stupid.

Jasper Juinen

Our intrepid co-hosts were recently at a poetry reading, where Pete was a featured poet. To celebrate, the two gentlemen (or perhaps scoundrels) discuss their relationships with poetry, what it all means and what can be done to combat this anti-poetry stigma we've got going on now. To wrap things up, there's a special announcement and a call-to-arms of sorts.

For your full enjoyment, links to things discussed on the podcast:

- Syl Johnson, "Is it Because I'm Black?"
- Pete, "Untitled (Pitbull)"
