April 17, 2017 Libby Charlton and Susan Fealy

One of the early programmes of the 3CR Spoken Word series, from 2009. Presenter Santo Cazzati invites into the studio the two poets who were the first people to talk to him when he was a shy first timer at poetry gigs. Susan and Libby both favour the shorter poem style but their respective attitudes to poetry and their personalities are very different. Susan demonstrates her thoughtful, restrained and pensive style, albeit with playful touches, while Libby is more obviously ironic and humorous, but reveals depth underneath the surface fun.
