Ep 1.4 Scrooge McDuck of Poetry

Cece and Anthony are joined by Dora Malech for our poetry month episode. In this episode, the group discuss Dora's background and what she's up to now (1:20), what Dora loves about poetry (6:50), and what she wishes she could change about it (12:30). Dora then speaks toward the sonic nature of her poetry (20:50) and what it was like publishing with a UK press (24:00). In the pop section, the group tackle the proposed cultural appropriation of Bruno Mars (28:35) and the issues with Cambridge Analytica and Facebook at large (42:30). Finally, in the Bang section, the group share their most embarrassing stories from the literary world (51:55).
