Our Wordstock edition features conversations with two writers of devastating wit and crack precision: poets, pranksters, and friends Morgan Parker (There Are More Beautiful Things than Beyoncé) and Tommy Pico (Nature Poem). They co-host New York’s “Poets With Attitude” reading series, where emerging stars read it like they wrote it. We also visit the sweetest, creepiest small town since Twin Peaks: the imaginary town of Night Vale. The setting for a podcast and now two books, it’s been described as “Lake Woebegone through the eyes of Stephen King”. Creators Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor (It Devours! A Welcome to Night Vale Novel) are our guests. With OPB’s April Baer and OPB’s Aaron Scott.
