The Poetry Slow Down, a weekly hour topical radio program on poetry and civic consciousness with the program’s founder and host, poet and professor Barbara Mossberg–the news you need, you news you heed, the news “without which men die miserably every day” (William Carlos Williams). The show frequently discusses both Staffords. This show is a tribute to William Stafford’s life work, in the context of a shared birthday month with Bobby Burns, exploring the connections between the two poets, including a sense of oneness and compassion for the natural world and the phenomenon that both poets are celebrated by dedicated communities who sustain and develop the meaning of their life works. Will there be an equivalent to the Burns Suppers and haggis? Stay tuned!
