A Speakeasy special! In place of the regular night I run in Canterbury in these irregular times, the show must go on(line) - Episode 3 brings us the wonderful Birdspeed, who is the UK Triple Crown 2019 Slam champion and was a perfect guest to have on this weeks show.
I share a fave from Mary Oliver and Birdspeed brings us some Robert Georges, I acknowledge my sadness in an uncharacteristic move that may or may not have been inspired by watching Inside-out on my Brothers Disney+ login - we discuss the importance of self-care and explore some of the deeper ramifications of social distancing. Also features headless chickens and a Michael Jackson reference.
You can find the stunning video from Birdspeed's last poem via her instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/birdspeedofficial and you can tune into next weeks show live at 7pm via mine: https://www.instagram.com/harrybakerpoet/
