The Subvocal Zoo

The Subvocal Zoo: Cody Walker – The Plenitude of the Moment

Poetry Northwest‚Äės podcast series,¬†The Subvocal Zoo, features editors and friends of the magazine interviewing poets. Each episode features lively conversation between writers in a different location.

Episode 13 finds Cody Walker¬†and Executive Editor¬†Kevin Craft¬†in conversation–a missive from a more innocent time–recorded in Los Angeles during the 2016 AWP Conference. Topics of discussion include humor, politics (like I said: a more innocent time…), fatherhood and teaching.
