Ron Kolm Podcast #2 Divine Comedy

We have Ron Kolm back again…well not back again but the second half of our first interview with him. 

We are releasing this now because he is coming out with a chapbook entitled Divine Comedy which is the three part poem we talk about in this interview.

the book launch will be at Gathering of the Tribes (Fly By Night Press is a tribes imprint):  285 E. 3rd Street New York, on Saturday, May 18th, at seven in the evening.

Thad Rutkowski, Chavisa Woods, Carl Watson, Bonny Finberg, George Spencer, Tsaurah Litzky, Rob Hardin and Steve Dalachinsky will be reading poems from the book. As always, Jim Feast will be the MC.  There will be copies of the book for sale; it should also be in St. Mark’s Books by then — eventually autonomedia will put it up on amazon —

The Idiom Podcast #3 with Josh Ballard

Here’s our third Idiom podcast with local Jersey poet, Josh Ballard…..His book “I Keep Going” is going to be released by Piscataway House Publications on December 30 (more info on the main idiom site or in the podcast)

Sometimes I consider myself an awkward person when talking to people….I accent the wrong words I trip up over things and when I talk I throw in random vague pronouns that don’t really explain what I have to say or what I intend them to mean….you would think that I would be better with words….at one point during this podcast I’m talking about the act of communion from a priest and I clearly say, “you know when the priest puts his thing in your mouth”  Out of context it sounds horrible….in context it doesn’t sound any better….

Why I’m doing a podcast I’m not sure and I hope to improve on it with every interview and prepare myself better so that I can better explain how I feel about a piece….

Well here it is check it out and if you are interested in having your work reviewed, send over some poems and we’ll consider them for a future podcast…

thanks,

Mark Brunetti

The Idiom Podcast with Josh Ballard

So Saturday, at the soulsational festival, is the release of the newest Idiom and a collection of Thief-kus. Here’s a glimpse at parts of their covers. Come to the festival and learn how to be healthy and pick up a copy of these two lit mags with some great poems by the poetry tent. A whole slew of us will be reading there all day….and a puppy will be there….
