We’re thrilled to be producing a poetry special in honor of National Poetry Month this April. As most of you know, in addition to being our favorite public radio host, Al Letson is also a poet, playwright, and actor.

In this hour-long special, SOTRU will explore all facets of poetry and its influence in Al’s life. We will talk to poets from all over the country about the craft, the lifestyle, the resurgence of poems, and of course, listen to beautiful poetry.

When Words Matter: A National Poetry Month Special will drop mid-April. Be sure to keep up with the latest releases from SOTRU by following us on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud and iTunes.
