Mar 28, 2021

Notes on the selections:

It's been a year. That's been the chorus for the past couple of weeks, and we're here, saying it too; it feels too notable, too hard-won, too full of loss, too much not to note. This episode is a compilation of some of the poems recorded over 62 episodes: a selection of poems that seem to speak to the intensely individual and communal experiences of grief and hope, of outrage and awe in the past year. Links to the poems and the original episodes below.

From "Read By: Louise Erdrich" - "Manhattan Is a Lenape Word," by Natalie Diaz
