EP 21: Embedded Poet

Hosts Scott Winter and Stacey Waite embark on an audio journey into the thick of war to discover what its like to be out there, over there, in “there”. A reading of Yusef Komunyakaa’s “Camouflaging the Chimera” precedes interviews with soldier poets Jennifer Pournelle, Brian Turner, and Elliot Woods about what actual war is like. The moments that exist between the bullets and the news coverage. The moments, it seems, that only poetry can touch.
