The Politics of Poetry

Acclaimed poet Joelle Taylor on class and art


This week I am joined by acclaimed poet, Joelle Taylor, the spoken word artist credited for bringing slam to the U.K. Joelle has a profound analysis of class and artistry that she threads through her work and this conversation; it is a startling investigation into privilege, poetry, and the literati. Buckle in—and enjoy.
