The poet Herb Martin has made a number of appearances on the show over the years. It is always such a treat to be able to feature him as a guest. Herb just published a new poetry collection, "The Shape of Regret," and I invited him out to our studios in Yellow Springs to talk about it.

There are so many lovely poems in this collection and Herb shared some of them with our audience. If you listen to the entire podcast you'll find a tasty poetic surprise right at the end of this recording.

Herbert Woodward Martin returned to the program to discuss the work of Paul Laurence Dunbar. At the time we originally presented this radio program Herb had just published a collection of Dunbar's work, "In His Own Voice: Dramatic & Other Uncollected Works," which he co-edited along with the scholar Ronald Primeau. Two years later his collaborator on this project would publish his own study of the work of Herb Martin.
