Latitude Special #1

Recorded at the 2018 Latitude Festival

It’s the first of a number of specials we recorded at this year’s Latitude Festival. On this first episode we’ve got a bit of a focus on poetry. Robin chats to host of The Verb, Ian McMillan, poet Luke Wright, the Octavia Poetry Collective, punk poet, musician and Josie Long’s primary school classmate Brigette Aphrodite and comedian and author Jonnie Bayfield. There’s chat of Dylan Thomas, Melvyn Bragg, Dostoevsky and astrophysics based poetry.
As always with the interviews we record at festivals, there’s a bit of background noise from bands and other performers.
