Why haven’t we read Ulysses?
My cohost is Delia Tramontina, from Flushing, NY. She earned her MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Her work most recently appeared in Newtown Literary, Forum and 1111. Her chapbook CONSTRAINT is forthcoming from Dancing Girl Press. For 3.5 years she co-hosted the online show, Poet as Radio, on San Francisco Community Radio. She lives and works in San Francisco.
The music is The Bells of Dublin/Christmas Eve by The Chieftains
The final episode for this season on resistance and community. Sometimes, to keep your wits sharp, you should edit someone else's work.
In this bonus episode I talk to one-time Naropa classmate Duncan B. Barlow about punk rock in Louisville, losing our fathers, our mutual affection for Bobbie Louise Hawkins and Laird Hunt, how to stay in the game, and the cats that interrupt us. Also, I screw up the name of Lewis and Clark College. Duncan is the author of the books Super Cell Anemia (2008), and Of Flesh and Fur (2016). His most recent novel is The City Awake, available from Stalking Horse Press. Duncan is also the head honcho at Astrophil Press, which recently published Eirka T. Wurth’s recent book Bucskin Cocaine.

The Terror Test (our other Eunoia Solstice Podcast)
And at one point I refer to the Roman Empire splitting in the 1100’s when I meant to say the Roman Church split referring the the Great Schism that gave us Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox. Forgive me, but I was raised a Lutheran, which broke with the catholics in the 1500s.
Keep writing. Even if you're alone in a shack in Montana. Otherwise, you'll turn into the unabomber.
