Planet Poetry

Launched in 2020, the Planet Poetry podcast is hosted by Peter Kenny & Robin Houghton. In each episode we interview a poet or editor or two (sometimes both), hear them read some of their poems and talk about their books, their craft and their life in poetry. We also banter a bit about poetry life, we debate current issues in poetry and talk about what we’ve been reading.

Part of its success is the fantastic chemistry between friends Peter and Robin, whose exchanges are illuminating, frank and often amusing.
