Poet Katie Manning dropped by Chapman University for the Tabula Poetica reading series, and Mike got to speak with her before her poetry talk! She reads from her full-length collection Tasty Other as well as from her four chapbooks! The two talk about research in poetry, what happens when your identity changes in your adult life, and how Katie can’t help but make the sad funny or inject the whimsical with somberness.

Full disclosure: this episode was recorded on site at Chapman’s new “podcast room” which wasn’t quite working, and had to be record on a desktop, laptop, and iPhone. The mix is better than you’d expect but the air conditioner is a bit loud. You get used to it.
