Hey friends - Episode 9 brings us the warm and wonderful Malaika Kegode! I got to know Malaika when I moved to Bristol where she now runs her fantastic Milk poetry nights which we talk about in the show, she finds something really old to share with us, as well as some poems from her new (shiny!) book and her borrowed poem being Thom Gunn's The Hug which I never knew how much I needed until I heard it.
To celebrate the Bristol link I share a poem about when I first went to Weston Super-Mare, and to honour it being national Numeracy day I talk about how I channeled my inner maths teacher to try and impress Ice Cube, as well as sharing some of the delightful Brian Bilston for my Something Borrowed.
