The Unpublishable Podcast, Episode 12: Beth, Faith Odigbo, and Balogun Abdulmueed
Welcome to the Unpublishable podcast. Love poems are often thought of as grand and romantic gestures; sweet rhyming verses about perfect relationships and domestic bliss. While there’s nothing wrong with this kind of poem, this week we’re looking at three poems that show different sides to love and infatuation: the thrill of infatuation, the all consuming nature of a budding crush, and the fear of feelings being made into words. Beth, Faith Odigbo, and Balogun Abdulmueed bring us their lovely poems about romance and all of its faces. Beth can be found here. Balogun Abdulmueed can be found here.  The Unpublishable Podcast features poems published in our zine, the Unpublishable Zine.

The Unpublishable Podcast Episode 10 - Jason Love, Ivan Ruccione, Carly Dudek, Mia Ochoa, and AR Salandy
In the midst of a global pandemic, mounting injustice, and loss, there is a feeling of sorrow piling upon sorrow; of control over the occurrences of the everyday slipping from our fingers; of helplessness and rage. This week, I wanted to give you poems that speak to this feeling of being out of control, to shift it and tilt it and show you each facet. Sometimes, yes, losing control is a vanquishing feeling, but sometimes, it’s in the relinquishing of control that we find clarity. Jason Love, Ivan Ruccione, Carly Dudek, Mia Ochoa, and AR Salandy have given us poems that shed control from its shoulders, that relish in the loss of it, and that mourn in its absence. Jason Love can be found here.  Ivan Ruccione can be found here and here.  A.R. Salandy can be found here and here.

Welcome to the Unpublishable Podcast. This week, we're looking at poems that focus on belonging - the feeling of being at home in a place, in a relationship, in one's own body and mind. From the fantastical to the domestic, this week's poems by Meghna Anil Nair, Kristin Garth, and David Centorbi ask to belong, sing the praises of belonging, and examine what unbelonging means.
