Dear Podcast Listener,Now more than ever, it is important for Americans to stop and listen to those we disagree with. The news is filled with drama from the presidential race and the police brutality protests in the NFL. It's easy to point our fingers and blame. But it's right to listen and try to understand.
As the editor of this podcast, I have the pleasure to sift through dozens of wonderful submissions and choose new, great work from writers across the country.
In a country dominated by New York and Los Angeles, many Southerners feel that their perspective gets swiped under the rug. In today's episode, CWO features two great Southern poets. I hope their words offer some perspective to you.
