IntroDICshun SHOW 1085 Hosted by Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz

an excerpt from Stretch Marks SHOW 1134 Hosted by Wess Mongo Jolley

I was lucky enough to have been featured on the podcast IndieFeed: Performance PoetryIntroDICshun was chosen by Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz to be part of her curated podcast, "The United States of Performance Poetry," made possible by a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.. The series wanted to celebrate regionalism. Aptowicz writes, "We want poems about small towns just as much as we want poems about big cities!" IntroDICshun is about vernacular, how people are judged by what they say not how they sound saying it. It's an excerpt from Reminiscence of the Ghetto & Other Things That Raized Me. I'm representing Irvington, NJ. And the work is a perfect fit for this podcast. It was an honor.

Consequently, Wess Mongo Jolley, also a host and proprietor of IndieFeed: Performance Poetry, featured an excerpt from Stretch Marks. Both hosts were generous in their descriptions of my work. This was a new medium for me and a great opportunity. I'd like to thank DJ Santi for the recordings--reverb on the back end!
