Ep66: National Poetry Day Special With Marvin Thompson
It’s the UK’s National Poetry Day! Frank has some thoughts about chance encounters, the concept of unrecorded history, and socks.
This week’s guest is the brilliant poet, Marvin Thompson, who talks about his new collection, Road Trip (Peepal Tree Press, 2020), in a wide ranging conversation, touching upon the history of slavery, developing your writing talent, and the importance of seeing both sides of the story.
Featuring Marvin’s poems, Samantha and The One In Which (Parts 1-4).
