Great Way to Start the Week

Poetry Magazine is the gold standard poetry publication in the US. They produce numerous podcasts. I do recommend their flagship podcast, Poetry Off the Shelf, in which they discuss and read works from the magazine every other week. However, these days the one I am really enjoying most is Poetry Now, which is a short (usually less than 5 minutes) episode every Monday in which the actual poet discusses his or her work and then reads it aloud. I have discovered some amazing poets, and it's a great way to start the week.
