This month, the SpokenWeb Podcast presents a crossover episode. This audio is part of literature professor Linda M. Morra‘s podcast, Getting Lit with Linda – The Canadian Literature Podcast, hosted and written by Linda, produced by Linda and Marco Timpano.
In Episode 7 from Season 2, Linda begins with the sound of her father’s old espresso machine, to explain how she sees — or hears — sound working in Magnetic Equator (published by McClelland & Stewart) by international poet, novelist, and sound performer Kaie Kellough. You can hear a sample of his sound poetry here. This episode includes a small excerpt read by Kellough himself (with permission by Kellough). In the “take-away” section, Linda talks about a biography she recently read by Sherrill Grace, about Canadian author Timothy Findley (published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press). If you’d like to know more about sound poetry, and about Kaie Kellough as a sound poet, check out Adam Sol’s blog post about Kellough on “How a Poem Moves.”
