Filling in the Gaps - World Poetry

Filling in the Gaps - World Poetry

By Emma Swaninger
A world poetry podcast, presented by Agitproper, aiming to bisect cultural boundaries to find common ground in poetry and literary works across the world. Host, Emma Swaninger and guests, embark on a journey to collect the story of the shared human pulse through a presentation of sound, language, meaning, and cultural intention. Together, we will be exploiting the rhythms of poetry through thoughtful recitation of verse in their original languages (guests) as well as a attempt to express the poets' message through an English rendering.
