“In an infinite number of universes there are some just like our own…save for one or two significant differences” so someone once said. In this week’s episode we go all Earth 2 with our amazing host Tatiana Ryckman as she sits down with the poet Ian Bodkin to discuss his debut collection, Every Word was Once Drunk, from ELJ publications. They talk about persona, the creation of Drunk, finding his name, quantum physics, what happens when moving on from such a voice in your head to the next bit of inspiration and preparing for the birth of a real boy. In preparing the space Tatiana discusses what type of shoes a writer should wear or the verisimilitude between training for a race and getting limber for the page. Then in What I’ve Been Reading Lately, Tatiana reads “Cristin’s a Bitter Bitchasaurus Rex” from Hot Teen Slut a new collection poems by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz from Write Bloody publishing. So cut out some paper hearts, open up a mason jar, hold your body pillow tight and enjoy!
