This Literary Podcast's Veterans Day Episode Featuring Poet Gary Beck

Timely poetry you should not miss.

"War is the most dynamic cause of change, and I try to learn as much about it as possible," poet and author Gary Beck said.

"Unfortunately, not a lot of it is admirable, twisted by history, politics, lies, etc. But it's oh so human, with all our grotesqueries from the heroic to the ridiculous."

Listen to Gary Beck's war-related poetry!
