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.
