Reviews For Close Readings

An elegant and surprisingly simple idea for a poetry podcast, and executed to perfection. Kamran is the ideal host: knowledgeable about poetics, deferential to his guests, and considerate of his audience. Whether I am familiar with the poem of the week or not, I leave each episode feeling richer and smarter.
Great podcast to listen to that keeps poetry close to feelings and words, yet also goes deeper into style/form of poems without getting too critical, deconstructive, and boring. Keep the poems coming!
Kamran knows what’s up. This podcast will be my favorite, I’m certain of it. Honored to provide the first review.
