Episode details

On today’s show, Dr. Andy hears from several renowned poets and a playwright, as well as some upcoming local events taking place in Yolo County. 

First, internationally recognized poet Tess Taylor talks with Dr. Andy about the human truths held in poetry from hearing it in the classroom vs. remotely on Zoom, and the underlying humanity it offers in a world returning (somewhat) to in-person instruction. Taylor reads from her book Rift Zone and talks about growing up in California and her identification with it. 

Later in the show, poet Noah Warren and Dr. Andy talk about old friends and stories, mystery, and Noah reads from his book “The Complete Stories.” Both Warren and Taylor will be the featured poets for the Poetry Night Reading Series this Thursday. 

Finally, we hear from the co-founder of the Davis Shakespeare Festival Rob Salas. He talks about the upcoming play “Native Gardens,” a big celebration for DSF’s first performance back since 2019! Tune in!
