S4:E33 David Baker with Julie Murphy

Listen to the episode here

Join Julie Murphy as she talks with renowned poet David Baker about his new book Whale Fall.  We read Stanley Plumly’s In Passing and talk about the how poems are one of the most connective things we have as humans, how a lyric moment opens from the pastoral to the sublime in the midst of a story, and about the solace of poetry.  Known from his early days as a nature poet, Baker’s work has evolved into Ecopoetry where nature becomes the whole subject field of the poem from his back yard in the midwest to the glaciers in Iceland to the depths of the ocean.
