In the summer of 2020 poets Peter Kenny and Robin Houghton, co-founders of Telltale Press, were thinking about new poetry projects. When Peter shared his idea of a poetry podcast, it turned out Robin had been thinking about the same thing for some time. Serendipity! After much research and some noodling about, Planet Poetry was born. Pascale Petit generously (and bravely!) agreed to be our first interviewee, and there followed a fantastic series of guest poets from the UK, Canada, China and the USA.
Season One ran from September 2020 to July 2021 and Season Two from September 2021 to July 2022. Season Three started October 2022 and will run until the summer of 2023.
