November 19, 2011- Occupy Oakland and TRY Magazine

On November 19th, we aired an interview with Sara Larsen and David Brazil about their amazing TRY! Magazine. They talk about the efforts to disseminate poetry to the people through their free, monthly zine. Listen to them talk about how they began the zine, their intention in making writing and art immediately accessible and how the work has reflected the political climate. We also aired the beginning of POETRY TO THE PEOPLE, the weekly, open reading series Sara and David organized at Occupy Oakland's Oscar Grant Plaza, prior to it's clearing on November 14th.
We will air the rest of this reading on December 3rd.

This past Saturday we had James Maughn live in the studio to talk about his books, Kata and The Arakaki Permutations, which are based on the intersection between karate and poetry. James discussed how he engaged with both of these practices, creating a work that is based on kata movements. He generously shared his process with us, as well as his experience of embodied writing. James's new chapbook, Playing the Form, is forthcoming from Dusie Press. Click here to listen
