Wonderful deep dives into poems. Love the focus on poetical form and the fact that he starts by reading the entire poem without any interruption/analysis. One of my favourite podcasts.


Poems to take your breath away. Listen to contemporary poets reading their poems and talking about what went into them. You will also hear Mark McGuinness reading classic poems and sharing his thoughts on what makes them great.
