Spoken word vs poetry on the page: Podcasts

entry picture

The poetry podcast has been around for a few years, but has it passed under the radar for a lot of people? 

Dublin-based poet and all-round creative Dave Lordan has tried something new, as he does.  If you have an hour to spare, maybe in the car or while soaking up the sun on holiday (or in your garden) you could do a lot worse than downloading and listening to The Spoken Word Show with Dave Lordan – Episode 1, available now – for free – on Soundcloud.
This hour of solid quality entertainment consists of live recordings of Irish performers, and features poetry, fiction, accessible literary criticism, new irish music from artists including Andre K’por, Fionn Ó hAlmhain, Monday Ni Cure, Karl Parkinson, Alana Daly Mulligan, Sasha Terfous, June Caldwell, Caitriona Coyle, Cuelebre, Derek Flynn, Kimberley Campanello & more.  It’s the only show focusing on spoken word in Ireland, as well as on related & cross-over artforms past & present.  Some of it is not for the faint-hearted, but hey, this is poetry and this is art, and this is a superb anthology of work which is well worth checking out.

i think its probably more common this article says likely (will i will have a listen to the podcast certainly soon). i've been running one myself which usually has a release or three every month called 'Spoken Label' which gets fairly good ratings and is improving all the time.
